Geocache Description:

Un cache para acercaros a la obra de Antonio Palacios en su ciudad natal.

---

A cache to visit Antonio Palacio's works in the city where he was born.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

En el punto inicial contar cuantas piletas talladas tiene la fuente, que será A. Hay que acercarse a la fuente y subir los escalones. No confundir con el número de grifos.

Ahora dirigirse a las coordenadas N 42º 9.712' W 8º 37.257'. Aquí averiguar a que altitud en metros sobre el nivel medio del Mediterráneo en Alicante se encuentra el centro de Porriño. Esta será B.

Luego dirigirse a las coordenadas N 42º 9.429' W 8º 37.158' y averiguar hacia cual de los cuatro puntos cardinales esta orientada la puerta (imaginaos que salís del recinto por la puerta). A qué grados de la brújula corresponde este punto será C. (El norte corresponde a 0 grados, o a 360 después de una vuelta completa)

La coordenadas finales para encontrar el cache son:

N 42º 9. (C+(2+A)*B)'
W 8º 37.(C-3*B-5*A)'

Muy cerquita de la puerta.

English:

At initial point count how many sinks cut in fountain's stone. This is A. You need a close up view climbing the steps. Do not confuse with the number of taps.

Now go to coordinates N 42º 9.712' W 8º 37.257' and find out the altitude of Porriño's center above mean Mediterranean level at Alicante. This is B.

Then go to coordinates N 42º 9.429' W 8º 37.158' and find out to which of the cardinal points is the gate oriented (Imagine you are getting out from the building). C equals the corresponding degrees of the compass. (North corresponds to 0 degrees, or 360 degrees upon completion of a full turn around)

Final coordinates of the location of the cache are:

N 42º 9. (C+(2+A)*B)'
W 8º 37.(C-3*B-5*A)'

This is very close to the gate.
