Geocache Description:


Português

A religiosidade e uma beleza natural única unem-se de forma mágica na Penha.

É um local sempre fascinante - místico e silencioso quando chove e uma neblina se espalha por entre os penedos, e verdejante, fresco, acolhedor nos dias soalheiros.

É por alguns dos pontos porventura menos conhecidos, mas característicos para a Penha - as grutas e desfiladeiros - que esta cache vos tenta levar.

Por exemplo:

N 41° 25.101'
ΣN = 4+1+2+5+1+0+1 = 14

English

A deep catholic tradition and a unique natural beauty merge in a magical way on the Penha Mountain.

It is an always fascinating place - mystical and quiet, when it is raining and mist spreads among the giant boulders, and green, fresh and welcoming on a sunny day.
