Geocache Description:


[PT]

Capelinha do Alto da Portela ou do Alto do Cruzeiro, é uma construção de cariz religioso católico que demarca a fronteira entre as freguesias de Paul e Barco, sendo que a capelinha e o seu “ajardinado” situa-se ainda no Paul a 541 metros de altitude.

Desconhece-se o ano de construção ou até o seu construtor, podendo-se estimar pelo inicio do sec.XX, finais do sec. XIX. A construção em pedra de granito alberga um quadro pintado invocativo à Nossa Senhora das Dores, surpreendentemente bem conservado dado o local e ausência de manutenção.

O caminho em terra ao lado do monumento demarca a fronteira inter-freguesias e também faz parte do trilho da Piçarra, 1 de 4 trilhos presentes no território do Paul sendo que 3 deles são PT’s.

A cache irmã situa-se na Capelinha das Alminhas a 1700 metros de distância: GC77DP1.

 


[EN]

Chapel of Alto da Portela or Alto do Cruzeiro, is a Catholic religious construction that demarcates the border between the parishes of Paul and Barco. The chapel and its "garden" is still in Paul territory at 541 meters altitude.

The year of construction or even its builder is unknown, it can be estimated at the beginning of the twentieth century, the end of XIX century. The granite stone construction houses a painting invocative to Our Lady of Sorrows, surprisingly well preserved given the place and lack of maintenance.

The dirt road next to the monument demarcates the inter-parish border and is also part of the Piçarra trail, 1 of 4 trails present in Paul's territory, 3 of which are PT's.

The sister cache is located in the Alminhas Chapel, 1700 meters away: GC77DP1.
