Geocache Description:

Porta do Povoamento

Segundo reza a história, foi na foz da Ribeira do Além, na orla costeira da Vila da Povoação, que os primeiros povoadores da ilha se São Miguel aportaram para assim iniciarem o povoamento.

Inaugurado em juljo de 2005 e implantado junto à beira-mar, o monumento "Porta do Povoamento" eterniza essa chegada histórica, e marca o tempo áureo dos descobrimentos portugueses.


A imponente construção escultórica já é um ex-líbris do município devido à sua carga simbólica e a uma forte presença do estilo arquitetónico presente.
