Geocache Description:


English version see below

Segovia, contando con la mas alta concentracion de iglesias románicas de toda europa, no podía ser sólo famosa por su acueducto, el mas gránde y mejor preservado de todo el mundo. El edificio mas alto de Segovia es su catedral del siglo 16 que se convierte así en un punto de referencia en cuanto uno se aproxima a la ciudad.

Segovia está rodeada por murallas medievales que están bordeadas por dos rios formando un anillo verde de parques. En el extremo noroeste esta el famoso Alcázar, fuente de inspiración de Walt Disney. En este castillo la reina Isabel la católica prometió a Colón financiar su búsqueda de una nueva ruta a las indias que le llevaría al descubrimento de América. Los paséos siguendo el rio en la parte norte de la ciudad conducen a espectaculares vistas del Alcazar y llevan a un caché escondido en esa zona.

El caché es una caja de plástico que contiene algunas cosas, entre ellas un libro de registro y un bolígrafo (que deberían permanecer siempre en el caché). Tambien incluye certificados para los tres primeros que lo localicen.

Por favor estar atentos a los transehuntes pues hay bastante gente incluso en el día mas frío o el mas húmedo del año.

Nota:
Como hay poca señal de GPS cerca de cache, se recomienda llevarse la foto del spoiler.

English version:

Segovia, having the highest concentration of Romanesque churches in all of Europe is not only famous for its Roman Aqueduct, the largest and best preserved of its kind anywhere. The tallest building in Segovia is still the 16th-century Cathedral, a prominent landmark as one approaches from any direction.

The city is surrounded by the medieval wall, which is bordered by two rivers and an extensive green-belt park. On the north-west extreme of the wall is the famous Alcázar castle, source of inspiration to Walt Disney, and where Queen Isabel promised Columbus the financial backing he needed to discover America. (Of course at this time he didn't know, that he is going to dicsover America.)

The pathways down by the river outside the city walls on the northern side of the town invite to walks with spectacular views to the castle and lead to a cache hidden in this zone.

The cache consists of a small tupper box, containing multiple things, including a pen and a logbook (which should remain in the cache) and certificates for the first three finders.

Please be mindful of the foot traffic along the pathway, since it can be quite busy on even the coldest or wettest day.

Note:
As there is poor GPS signal at the cache location, it is recommended to bring the spoiler photo.
