Geocache Description:

P: Esta cache está escondida perto das Nascentes do Alviela, um local com uma paisagem pouco comum, e muito bonita.

E: This cache is located near the River Alviela Springs, in an unusual and very beautiful landscape.

P: Esta cache situa-se perto das Nascentes do rio Alviela, nos limites do Maciço Calcário Estremenho.

Quando a Ribeira dos Amiais encontra o Maciço Calcário, torna-se subterrânea durante cerca de 200m, ressurgindo num canhão, junto ao local dos Olhos d'Água do Alviela, uma das nascentes que abastece Lisboa de Água.

Se decidir explorar o canhão e a entrada das grutas, tenha em atenção que o calcário está extremamente liso, devido à erosão da água, e é muito escorregadio.

A Cache é um tupperware pintado de verde e a sua colocação foi um projecto colectivo do António, Cristina, Isaac, Isaac, Adelaide e Luís.

E: This cache was placed near the Springs of the Alviela River, on the edge of the limestone massif.

When the Amiais creek runs into the massif, it goes underground for 200m, surfacing in a canyon, near one of the sources of the Lisbon water system.

If you decide to explore the canyon and the entrance of the caves, please notice that the limestone is extremely smooth because of the water erosion and is very splippery.

The Cache is a green tupperware and it's placement was a group effort of António, Cristina, Isaac, Isaac, Adelaide and Luís.
