Geocache Description:

Located within 40 meters of the cross and plaque at Alto da Memória, in Sintra. Localizada a 40 metros da cruz e placa no Alto da Memória, em Sintra.

This cache is a joint venture between me (ppinheiro) and my friend Luis (MCA). This place has a special significance - there is a cross and a plaque remembering the soldiers who died nearby fighting a forest fire in the 60s. From the area, you can see from Cascais to Lisboa (on a good day), and all the area north of Sintra. You can drive (unless it's a very low car) within 50m of the cache location.
