garri: As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm archiving this to keep it from continually showing up in search lists. Just contact me when you have the cache repaired, and assuming it still meets the guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Geocache Description:


The cache has NEW COORDINATES:

New Coordinates are N 38º 43.363 W 009º 28.718

Finally re-placed this cache on its new location. No longer on top of the hill like before, but still yellow inside, in memory of the old Guincho Yellow Cache (which was vandalized).

It is now a Micro cache (35mm canister), transparent with a yellow paper inside. It is located in the Guincho area and the location is fairly obvious. You can explore the area and contemplate the view as the water hits the rocks down there. The sea is nature at its best, being wonderful and demanding respect at the same time. Take pictures and post them here if you can.

The cache is so small that all it has is:

- log book (or shall I say ‘log roll’)
- pencil
- sharpener
- geocaching information

If the weather is fine and you feel like a good 20min hike for the most amazing view of the Guincho area, please visit the spot where the Guincho Yellow Cache used to be, following these directions:

1. Park your car and start your 500m hike at waypoint N 38º 44.272 , W 9º 28.175.
2. Your goal is to get to the “geodesic marker” at waypoint N 38º 44.186. W 9º 27.900. Once there, take time to enjoy the view!
