As the cache owner, you are also responsible for physically checking your cache periodically, and especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to hunt for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable time – [b]normally a few weeks[/b] – in which to arrange a visit to your cache. In the event that a cache is not being properly maintained, or [b]has been temporarily disabled for an extended period of time, we may archive the listing[/b].

It may be difficult to fulfill your maintenance obligations if you place a cache while traveling on vacation or otherwise outside of your normal caching area. These caches may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan. It is not uncommon for caches to go missing, areas to be cleared, trails to be blocked or closed, objects used for multi-cache or puzzles to be moved or removed, etc. [b]Your maintenance plan must allow for a quick response to reported problems.[/b]

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me.

Lembro que o "desarquivamento" de uma cache, e a sua eventual consequente reactivação, passa pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines indicam.

Se no local existe algum container, por favor recolha-o a fim de evitar que se torne lixo (geolitter).

Abraço e obrigado,

Geocache Description:

Uns dos monumentos mais bonitos da cidade de Leiria.
Vão de carro e estacionem em N39º44,387 W008º48,120 e subam os degraus. Para os mais perguiçosos, continuem rampa acima e estacionem em N39º44,324 W008º47,959.
A caçada começa no parque de merendas.
Atenção! Após alguns "incidentes", deixo aqui o aviso para terem cuidado com os ciclistas que utilizam o trilho para downhill... :)

Santuário de N.ª Srª Encarnação

Diz a lenda que, em 11 de Julho de 1588, uma inválida de nome Susana Dias, foi levada àquela capela, onde iam à missa os Marqueses de Vila Real e muito povo no altar de N.S. da Encarnação. No momento da Elevação a jovem sentiu-se pressionada por algo indefinível e levantou-se e começou a andar.
Este acontecimento veio renovar a fé em N.ª Sr.ª da Encarnação, o que levaria à construção de uma nova igreja. É um santuário pequeno, com um corpo revestido a azulejos policromos de padrão seiscentista e pinturas votivas à Virgem e a S.Gabriel, feitos em pedra e colocados sobre a porta principal. No exterior a igreja foi dotada de um alpendre simples.
O bispo D.Fr. Miguel de Bulhões e Sousa mandou construir uma monumental escadaria, de 162 degraus, que lhe dá um aspecto imponente.
A beleza deste santuário é completada pelo diverso arvoredo que existe à sua volta e a vista sobre a cidade que se pode apreciar a partir daqui é uma experiência única.

The Our Lady of the Incarnation Sanctuary

The legend says that in the 11th of July of 1588, an handicapped woman, named Susana Dias, was taken to that chapel, where the Marquis of Vila Real and many people joined for the Mass, by the altar of Our Lady of the Incarnation. By the moment of the Elevation, the young woman felt pushed by something that couldn't be defined, stood up and began walking.
This event renewed the faith on the Virgin, and lead to the building of a new church. It's a small sanctuary, with the main part covered with sixteenth century multicolour tiles and paintings devoted to the Virgin and to St. Gabriel, casted is stone and placed over the main entrance. On the outside, it was made a simple porch.
The Bishop D. Miguel de Bulhões e Sousa order the building of a great stairway, with 162 steps, that gives an imponent look.
The beauty of this place it's made complete with the surrounding vegetation and the fantastic sight over the town of Leiria.
