VG – Alcaria do Cume

VG – Alcaria do Cume

O Vértice Geodésico de Alcaria do Cume encontra-se localizado na freguesia de Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, concelho de Tavira, sendo assim um dos pontos mais altos do Sotavento Algarvio.

A 525 metros de altitude consegue-se ter uma vista de 360º sobre a imensa zona de serra e uma excelente panorâmica sobre a Ria Formosa e Oceano Atlântico.

A cache

Apresenta-se num container micro, originalmente com logbook e stashnote. É necessário levar material de escrita.
