Geocache Description:

Travelling the Azores, you will sometimes notice ruins - houses where the roof has collapsed, walls are crumbling and overgrown. Many of these houses aren't abandoned yet; they wait for an owner working overseas who will return and invest the money he has saved to upgrade the old house and, living therein, will enjoy his life as a senior. Not so in Fajã Grande, where they have invented a different type of "lost place": Completely new-built houses abandoned from the very first minute.

Have fun and enjoy the landscape. Beautiful view on the Fajã? No! Because the architect failed; local people call him "o arquitécto louco". From the front row of apartments you can have a nice view on a football field and the sea, from second row you'll see first row of apartments, entirely (no football, no sea), whereas third row has to be content with a view on second row.

We are often on Flores Island, but not every holiday. In the meantime the local geocacher teamjorgenses will help us to maintain this cache. Obrigado!

Visitamos frequentemente Ilha das Flores, mas não todas as férias. O geocacher “teamjorgenses” da Ilha de São Jorge ajudar-nos-á tratar deste cache. Obrigado!
