pcardoso: Tendo tido oportunidade de o visitar recentemente, o convento continua em obras. Ou melhor, continua fechado à espera de obras. Sendo assim, e para não prolongar demasiado a situação de desactivada temporiamente, a melhor opção será mesmo arquivar a cache. Poderia recolocá-la noutro local, fora da cerca, mas não teria o mesmo espírito. Fica no entanto aberta a hipótese para alguém que o queira fazer.

Obrigado a todos os que visitaram este cantinho perto de Setúbal que pouca gente conhece.

Geocache Description:

E: This hunt will take you inside an ancient convent with "hanging gardens".

P: Esta caça vai levá-los ao interior de um antigo convento com "jardins suspensos".

E: Near Setubal, two convents were built a long time ago and are now surrounded by overgrown vegetation. Near a farm named as "Quinta de S. Paulo" (St. Paul's farm), the newest convent is waiting for repairs but is still easily reached by anyone. The old convent, today little more than ruins, is the place you'll want to go. Be carefull though, this hunt will require some squill. But is worth the visit to the hanging gardens...

You'll have to leave your car at the picnic area:
N 38º32.697' W 8º54.476'
From there go on foot by a trail surrounding the new convent by the right, before reaching the old one.

P: Perto de Setúbal, dois conventos foram contruídos há muito e estão agora cercados por densa vegetação. Perto da Quinta de S. Paulo, o convento mais novo espera por reparações, mas pode ainda hoje ser facilmente visitado por qualquer pessoa. O convento velho, pouco mais que ruinas, é o vosso objectivo. Tenham cuidado, esta caçada requer alguma perícia. Mas vale a pena visitar os jardins suspensos...

Terão de deixar o carro no parque de merendas em:
N 38º32.697' W 8º54.476'
Daí, ir a pé por um caminho que rodeia o convento novo pela direita, antes de chegar ao velho.
