Geocache Description:


[PT]

Em meados do s√©culo XVI, os freires da Ordem Militar de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo, vulgarmente chamados de Tomar, resolveram criar um convento da sua Ordem em Coimbra, e nele um Col√©gio universit√°rio. A 6 de maio de 1566, iniciaram-se as primeiras obras de constru√ß√£o, terminadas decorridos cento e quarenta e sete anos. Extinto em 1834, o edif√≠cio ficou exposto ao abandono e vandalismo (√© o √ļnico dos vinte e tr√™s Col√©gios universit√°rios, de que nada resta, a n√£o serem umas rel√≠quias de baixo valor, que se encontram no Museu de Machado de Castro, em Coimbra). Na posse do governo, foi integralmente demolido e no seu lugar foi mandada construir a penitenci√°ria, em 1873. Ao abrigo da carta de Lei de 1888, √© criada a Cadeia Penitenci√°ria de Coimbra, destinada a reclusos condenados a penas superiores a dois anos e delinquentes de "Dif√≠cil Corre√ß√£o".

Atualmente designado de Estabelecimento Prisional de Coimbra, √© um estabelecimento fechado, de constru√ß√£o celular, obedecendo a disposi√ß√Ķes arquitet√≥nicas que o inserem nos chamados estabelecimentos "em estrela" ou, de forma mais precisa, no sistema de Filad√©lfia, que permite uma maior facilidade de vigil√Ęncia gra√ßas √† sua configura√ß√£o (Sistema Pan√≥ptico de Bentham).

O edif√≠cio central representa um oct√≥gono, no qual os seus lados correspondem √†s oito alas existentes (A a H), com celas dispostas umas em frente das outras, em v√°rios pisos. Na ala A insere-se a escola, servi√ßos m√©dicos e os gabinetes de atendimento aos reclusos. Nas restantes encontram-se as celas, que em n√ļmero variam entre 2 e 163. Na cave, localizam-se as celas disciplinares. Todas as alas t√™m corredores que convergem para as torres centrais, local onde √© poss√≠vel observar e vigiar todas as alas. O Estabelecimento inclui tamb√©m um edif√≠cio anexo dedicado ao corpo de guarda, a antiga casa de fun√ß√£o do diretor e o parque oficinal.

À data de 2016, a população prisional compreendia 498 indivíduos do género masculino, dos quais 393 em medida privativa de liberdade em regime comum, com penas de longa duração. Do total, cerca de metade são reincidentes.

O Estabelecimento est√° vocacionado para a aprendizagem de v√°rios of√≠cios (marcenaria, carpintaria, serra√ß√£o, estofaria, encaderna√ß√£o, empalhadores, entalhadores, mec√Ęnica, polidores, sapataria e serralharia), bem como de cursos de forma√ß√£o profissional (instala√ß√£o e repara√ß√£o de computadores, reconhecimento, valida√ß√£o e certifica√ß√£o de compet√™ncias, carpintaria de limpos e arruamentos e pavimentos). Adicionalmente, existem tamb√©m os setores da agropecu√°ria, alfaiataria, lavandaria, obras, sala de leitura, sal√£o de vendas e sec√ß√£o el√©trica.

Classificação

Classificação de segurança: Alta.
Classificação de grau de complexidade: Elevado.

 

Apesar de todas as medidas de seguran√ßa adotadas, um dos reclusos conseguiu fugir do Estabelecimento Prisional. Todas as pistas indicam que n√£o ter√° fugido para longe, mas a pol√≠cia est√° a ter dificuldades em encontr√°-lo. A vossa ajuda √© fundamental. O recluso foi visto pela √ļltima vez nas coordenadas iniciais, a correr para norte.

Qualquer semelhança com a realidade é pura coincidência.

 


‚Ė≤ A Cache ‚Ė≤:

Esta é uma multi-cache com um ponto intermédio e uma localização final, na qual se encontra o container. Para a encontrar poderá ser necessário algum conhecimento de geometria e cálculo.

Para aceder ao ponto intermédio, retira a data de inauguração da estátua em homenagem ao Papa João Paulo II.

  • N 40¬į 12.(417+(dia da inaugura√ß√£o*10)) W 008¬į 25.(182-m√™s da inaugura√ß√£o)
  • Considera que (D+D+M+Y+Y+Y+Y¬†+1) x (-1) = A.

 

No ponto intermédio:

  • Soma o n√ļmero dos autocarros que aqui param e subtrai 323 (B)

‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčPara chegar √†s coordenadas finais e ao respetivo GZ, liga as coordenadas e considera que A √© o √Ęngulo nas coordenadas iniciais e B o √Ęngulo nas coordenadas interm√©dias ‚Ė≤

 


Orienta√ß√Ķes e conselhos:

O percurso pode ser realizado a p√©, de bicicleta ou de trotinete.¬†Para realizarem esta aventura, √© necess√°rio terem um dispositivo com liga√ß√£o √† internet e GPS. Como conte√ļdo inicial, inclui um¬†logbook e stashnote. √Č necess√°rio levarem material de escrita e se poss√≠vel, uma pin√ßa para auxiliar na remo√ß√£o do logbook. A abertura e fecho do container dever√° ser cuidada para evitar que se parta. As buscas devem ser discretas pois poder√£o existir muggles nas proximidades. Pedimos que deixem tudo tal qual encontraram, ou melhor.¬†Caso verifiquem alguma anomalia, informem-nos por favor. A durabilidade da cache depende de todos n√≥s. Fotos da cache ou sugestivas do GZ ser√£o apagadas para n√£o estragar a surpresa. Divirtam-se e fa√ßam CITO (Cache In, Trash Out)!

Cache description:

In the 16th century, the friars of the Ordem Militar de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo, commonly known as the Ordem de Tomar, created a convent and a University College in Coimbra. On May 6th, 1566, the first construction works began, only to be completed one hundred and forty-seven years later. Extinct in 1834, the building was abandoned and vandalized (it is the only one out of twenty three University Colleges of which nothing remains, except some relics of low value, which are found at the Museum of Machado de Castro, in Coimbra). It was completely demolished by the order of the Government. The prison was later built in 1873. Under the Law of 1888, the prison was raised to Prison Establishment of Coimbra, intended for inmates with sentences of more than two years and delinquents of "Difficult Correction".

Currently designated by Prison Establishment of Coimbra, it is a closed facility of cellular construction, due to architectural provisions that are either inserted in the so-called "star" establishments or, more precisely,  the Philadelphia system, which allows an increased surveillance due to its configuration (Bentham Panoptic System).

The central building represents an octagon, whose sides correspond to the eight existing wings (A to H), with cells arranged one in front of the other, on several floors. Wing A contains the school, medical services and the inmates' care offices. The remaing wings contain the cells, which vary in number between 2 and 163. In the basement, there are the disciplinary cells. All wings have corridors that converge to the central towers, where it is possible to observe and monitor all wings. The Establishment also includes an annex building dedicated to the guards, the former director's function house and the workshop park.

As of 2016, the prison population comprised 498 male individuals, of which 393 were in deprivation of liberty under a common regime, with long-term sentences. Of the total, about half are repeat offenders.

The Establishment is dedicated to the learning of various trades (carpentry, carpentry, sawing, upholstery, bookbinding, stuffers, carvers, mechanics, polishers, shoemaking and metalwork), as well as professional training courses (installation and repair of computers, reconnaissance, validation and certification of skills, clean carpentry and streets and floors). Additionally, there are also the sectors of agriculture, tailoring, laundry, works, reading room, sales hall and electrical section.

 

Classification

Security Rating: High.
Classification of degree of complexity: High.

 

Despite all the security measures adopted, one of the inmates managed to escape from the Prison. All clues indicate that he didn't run far away, but the police are having a hard time finding him. Your help is essential. The recluse was last seen at the starting coordinates, running north.

Any resemblance to reality is purely coincidental.


 

‚Ė≤¬†The Cache ‚Ė≤:

This is a multi-cache with an intermediate point and an end location where the container is located. Finding it may require some knowledge of geometry and calculus.

To access the intermediate point, remove the opening date of the statue of Pope John Paul II.

  • N 40¬į 12.(417+(opening day*10)) W 008¬į 25.(182-opening month)
  • Consider that (D+D+M+Y+Y+Y+Y + 1) x (-1) = A.


At the intermediate point:

  • Add the bus numbers at the bus stop and subtract 323 (B)

 

To get to the final coordinates and the respective GZ, connect the coordinates and consider that A is the angle at the initial coordinates and B the angle at the intermediate point¬†‚Ė≤



Guidelines and advice:

The route can be done on foot, by bicycle or by scooter. To carry out this adventure, it is necessary to have a device with internet connection and GPS. As initial content, it includes a logbook and stashnote. It is necessary to bring writing material and, if possible, tweezers to assist in removing the logbook. The opening and closing of the container must be careful to prevent it from breaking. Searches should be discreet as there may be muggles nearby. We ask that you leave everything as you found it, or better. If you notice any anomalies, please let us know. The durability of the cache is up to all of us. Photos from the cache or suggestive of the GZ will be deleted so as not to spoil the surprise. Have fun and make CITO (Cache In, Trash Out)!
