Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.

btreviewer: Esta cache foi arquivada por falta de uma resposta atempada e/ou adequada perante as situações relatadas. Relembro a secção das guidelines sobre a manutenção http://support.groundspeak.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=307#maint :

[quote]
You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, 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 search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time – normally a few weeks – in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing.

Because of the effort required to maintain a geocache, we ask that you place physical caches in your usual caching area and not while on a vacation or business trip. It is best when you live within a manageable distance from the cache placements to allow for return visits. Geocaches placed during travel may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan, which must allow for a quick response to reported problems. An acceptable maintenance plan might include the username of a local geocacher who will handle maintenance issues in your absence.[/quote]

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me por [url=http://www.geocaching.com/email/?u=btreviewer]e-mail[/url].

Lembro que a eventual reactivação desta cache passará pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines actuais indicam.

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

Obrigado

Geocache Description:



O FORTE de Nossa Senhora das Neves




Hello, I’m the Fortress Guardian, a very old mole, I dig my way out through the ground of this fortress for centuries, and I like to show this wonderful place to you.


A sua construção, a mando do Conde de Lippe, foi iniciada no reinado de D. João IV (1646). Este forte foi criado para uma melhor defesa militar costeira na época. Em 1648, um alvará criava para esta fortaleza uma guarnição de seis soldados pagos.


Actualmente este velho forte setecentista encontra-se em excelente estado de conservação. A propósito deste forte escreveu Ramalho Ortigão:
«A fortaleza da população, cujos fossos estão cuidadosamente ajardinados, tem, vista de perto, o carácter pitoresco de uma hora acastelada. Como construção militar, é do género daquelas que existem na maior parte das praias portuguesas, e que foram construídas sob a direcção do Conde de Lippe». (Ramalho Ortigão, op. Cit.)


Now you are invited to look for my place, but be gentle because it´s fragile.
