Geocache Description:


Durante séculos o sal desempenhou um papel preponderante na economia mundial e teve uma grande influência nas culturas ligadas a ele. Em Portugal, com excelentes condições climatéricas e geográficas e com técnicas adequadas, tornou o sal português um dos produtos mais procurados do pais.

For centuries, salt detained a preponderant role in worldwide economy and had a great influence on the culture of those connected with it. Portugal’s great geographic and climatic conditions, as well as the use of adequate techniques for the development of the salt industry, have turned Portuguese salt in one of the most sought-after products in the country.Troncalhada salina, Aveiro

O mais antigo documento que fala da exploração das lagoas de sal em Portugal, é datado de 959 A.C. e aparece na doação de terras e salinas de Aveiro, pela condessa de Mumadona, sua proprietária, ao mosteiro de S. Salvador, também por ela fundado em Guimarães, embora existam vestígios de exploração anteriores à época romana.

The oldest document to report on the exploration of salt ponds in Portugal is dated 959 AD and appears in the donation of lands and salinas from the region of Aveiro by the Countess of Mumadona, their owner, to the Monastery of S. Salvador, also founded by her in the city of Guimarães, even though there are older vestiges of such an exploration previous to Roman domination.

Esta cache leva-nos até um antigo palheiro, abrigo de marnotos e ferramentas durante os períodos de actividade das salinas. Por favor cuidem dos locais por onde passam e tenham cuidado.

This cache will show you an warehouse where the workers from the salinas stay during the salt extraction season. To log this cache you must follow the trail that workers used. Keep in mind that it's very slippery during winter and full of mosquitoes during summer.

Por favor deixem tudo como encontraram e divirtam-se.

Please leave everithing in place. Have fun!
