Geocache Description:


Geocaching Aldeias de Xisto

A Rede das Aldeias do Xisto é um projeto de desenvolvimento sustentável, de âmbito regional, liderado pela ADXTUR- Agência para o Desenvolvimento Turístico das Aldeias do Xisto, em parceria com 21 Municípios da Região Centro e com cerca de 100 operadores privados que atuam no território.

Estado presentes em quatro Unidades de Paisagem (Serra da Lousã, Serra do Açor, Zêzere e Tejo-Ocreza), as Aldeias do Xisto representam um belíssimo património cultural e natural. Com vastas possibilidades que vão desde a gastronomia à etnografia, das ruralidades e da ligação à natureza e à floresta, as Aldeias do Xisto têm enorme potencial turístico e não só.

O projeto Geocaching Aldeias do Xisto propõe aumentar a oferta de pontos de interesse associados a esta prática da caça ao tesouro do sec. XXI. Pretende dotar cada aldeia com pelo menos duas caches e integrar algumas já existentes em circuitos e percursos pedestres.

The Schist Villages area is a region of Portugal’s interior that has successfully been promoted to tourists. The brand is managed by the ADXTUR association, the Agency for the Touristic Development of the Schist Villages, and brings together 21 Municipalities of the central region of Portugal, and more than 100 private local operations, which all share the common strategy of promoting and revitalising an area where schist stone dominates the landscape.

Present in four Landscape Units (Serra da Lousã, Serra do Açor, Zêzere and Tejo-Ocreza), the Schist Villages represent a beautiful cultural and natural heritage. With vast possibilities ranging from gastronomy to ethnography, rurality and the connection to nature and to the forest, the Schist Villages have enormous touristic potential, among others.

The Geocaching Schist Villages Project proposes to increase the offer of points of interest associated with this practice treasure hunting of the XXI century. It intends to equip each village with at least two caches and integrate some already existent in circuits and pedestrian routes.

A Cache

Figueira localiza-se onde a aba sul da Serra de Alvelos dá lugar à planura da charneca, numa pequena elevação num ondulado quase infinito. Aqui não há proeminências na paisagem. Apenas um terreno xistoso com elevações boleadas pelo tempo e linhas de água aprofundadas até à rocha viva por águas que correm torrencialmente. Por isso o vale encaixado da ribeira estabelece à aldeia o seu limite norte.

É um equipamento de meados do séc. XX, constituído por duas partes distintas, uma para uso dos habitantes da aldeia e outra, mais afastada, para uso do gado.

Figueira is located where the south flank of the Serra de Alvelos gives way to the flatness of the heath, on a small elevation with the land rolling all around. Here there are no steep slopes in the landscape. It is merely a schistose terrain with hills eroded into gentle curves and water courses cut down to the “living rock” by torrential flows. Which is why the deep valley cut by the stream forms the northern boundary of the village.

This mid- 20th century facility consists of two separate parts, the nearer one for the use of the villagers and the other for the flocks to drink from.

Look for the cache on the base of the tank.
