Geocache Description:

No height difference. Nearly zero walking time.

The above coordinates bring you nowhere. Calculate them as described below.



Calculate the real coordinates of the cache as follows:
  1. At first you have to find a statue of 'The Saint', which contains a plaque, to figure out the coordinates of the cache location. The statue is located near the motorway south (Autopista del Sur) around 50 meters from the motorway somewhere between the following pair of coordinates:
    28°04.231 N 016°33.326 W      and      28°03.832 N 016°42.518 W
    The statue is visible from the motorway.
  2. The plaque on the base of the statue tells you the date, when the statue was unveiled. Take this date as:
    a b . c d . e f g h
    a b      = day of unveilment
    c d      = month of unveilment
    e f g h = year of unveilment
  3. Now calculate the coordinates of the cache according to the following simple rule:

          28°02.gh(d-e) N 016°33.aa(d-a) W


and find your way to the cache location, where you can be a pilgrim to the place, where 'The Saint' lived many many years ago, before he started his long trip to South America.

Spanish translation:
Un cache sin desnivel y sin mucho caminando a pie.Las coordenadas de arriba son falsas. Debes calcularlos así:

  1. De primero debes encontrar una estatua de 'El Santo', conteniendo una plaqua, para calcular las coordenadas del lugar del cache. La estatua la encuentras cerca de la Autopista Del Sur mas o menos 50 metros de la autopista entre el par de las coordenadas siguentes:
    28°04.231 N 016°33.326 W      y      28°03.832 N 016°42.518 W
    Puedes ver la estatua, conduciendo en la autopista .
  2. La plaqua al zócalo de la estatua te dice la fecha de la revelación de la estatua. Tomes esta fecha como:
    a b . c d . e f g h
    a b      = dia de la revelación
    c d      = mes de la revelación
    e f g h = año de la revelación
  3. Ahora calcules las coordenadas del primer cache según la regla siguente:

    28°02.gh(d-e) N 016°33.aa(d-a) W

y te vas al lugar del cache, donde puedes estar un peregrino al lugar, donde 'El Santo' vivía hace muchísimos años, antes de comencar su viaje a America del Sur.

German translation:
Keine Höhendifferenz. Nahezu null Wanderzeit.Die obigen Koordinaten sind falsch und bringen Dich nirgendwohin. Berechne sie, wie folgt.

  1. Zunächst mußt Du eine Statue des 'Heiligen' finden, die eine Plakette enthält, mit der Du die Koordinaten des Caches berechnen kannst. Die Statue befindet sich in der Nähe der Südautobahn (Autopista del Sur) in ungefähr 50 Metern Entfernung von der Autobahn irgendwo zwischen dem folgenden Koordinatenpaar:
    28°04.231 N 016°33.326 W      und      28°03.832 N 016°42.518 W
    Die Statue ist von der Südautobahn aus sichtbar.
  2. Die Plakette auf dem Sockel der Statue enthält das Datum, an welchem die Statue enthüllt wurde. Nimm dieses Datum als:
    a b . c d . e f g h
    a b      = Tag der Enthüllung
    c d      = Monat der Enthüllung
    e f g h = Jahr der Enthüllung
  3. Jetzt berechne die Koordinaten des Cache gemäß der folgenden einfachen Formel:

    28°02.gh(d-e) N 016°33.aa(d-a) W

und finde den Weg zum Cache, wo Du ein Pilger zu dem Ort sein kannst, wo der 'Heilige' vor vielen vielen Jahren gelebt hat, bevor er sich auf den Weg nach Südamerika machte.
