Geocache Description:

Near Campo do Gerês, this cache is situated in Cidade da Calcedónia.

There is possibly another way to get there, but I advise you to leave the car at N41 43.417 W8 11.340 and walk from there. There is a trail that leads to the entrance of a cave and a couple of direction signs, including one that states you are in Cidade da Calcedónia.If you enter the cave and follow it to the end (it's hard but it's worth it - not for the faint of heart, though. Be extra careful and DO NOT go by yourself), you will pass through places that will probably look like you can't continue. If you do, look for an alternative. It is possible (but again, not easy).The cache is a white tupperware in a white plastic bag.PS - After reading the report of the Geocachers that tried to find this cache, I decided to go check if it was still there. It is. In better conditions than I thought it would be. My tip is: If there's rock above you, keep climbing. It's up there in the top.I can't stress this enough: BE CAREFULL AND DON'T GO BY YOURSELF. But do go. Hendrik (TravelBug) must be feeling pretty lonely by now. Take him somewhere else. Good luck.

PS - After reading the comments below, I decided to go check if the cache is still there. It is. Don't give up, it's worth it.
