Geocache Description:










Translation: 
OS ARREDADOS
Cascata do Rabo do Burro ou da Fajã Escura



PT:
A Missa do Parto dos Arredados é já uma tradição anual na Freguesia De Ponta Delgada, realizando-se habitualmente no último domingo antes do Natal.
É uma missa que reúne sempre muitas pessoas de várias zonas da Madeira, sendo por intenção das pessoas que raramente participam nas cerimónias religiosas e como tal estão arredadas da liturgia.

Tal como os arredados estão afastados das liturgias também algumas pessoas estão arredadas da Natureza. Esta cache é um convite para um regresso à Natureza, uma purificação e quem sabe com um lavar dos pés incluído.

ATENÇÃO:
- A dificuldade desta cache depende do caudal da ribeira. Analisa as condições e não arrisques.
- Existe um trilho pouco marcado na margem oeste (ver spoiler). Utilizando o trilho serão poucas as vezes que terás de andar dentro da ribeira.
- O percurso deverá ser feito apenas com boas condições climatéricas.
- Deverás levar água e comida, roupa e calçado apropriados (roupa extra para o caso de te molhares).
- A utilização de um bordão é recomendada.
- O sinal GPS é muito fraco por isso utiliza a Hint e o Spoiler.

EN:
The Arredados Mass in honour of the birth of Jesus is already an annual tradition in the Parish of Ponta Delgada, usually taking place on the last Sunday before Christmas.
It is a mass that always gathers many people from various parts of Madeira and is intended to the Arredados (people who rarely participate in religious ceremonies and as such are distant from the liturgy).

As the Arredados are distant from the liturgies also some people are cut off from Nature.
This cache is an invitation for a return to nature, a purification and who knows with a Washing of the Feet included.

"In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks." John Muir

ATTENTION:
- The difficulty of this cache depends on the flow of the stream. Analyze the conditions and don't take risks.
- There is a trail on the west bank (see spoiler). If you use the trail you will avoid walking inside the river bed most of the way.
- The course must be done only with good weather conditions.
- You should bring water and food, clothing and appropriate footwear (extra clothing in case you get too wet).
- The use of walking poles is recommended.
-The GPS signal is very weak in this area so use the Hint and the Spoiler.
