Geocache Description:

 

This cache is a microcache: filmcannister

 

!! YOU WILL NEED A TORCH/FLASHLIGHT !!

 


Inside the Sete Cidadescrater there are two lagoas: Lagoa Azul - the largest - and Lagoa Verde.

Along the Lagoa Azul you'll find the village of Sete Cidades

 

Because these lakes are situated inside a crater all the water in the area floods into the lake, which caused so frequent flooding of the village, that in the 1930's it was decided to dig a tunnel to relieve the village from excess water.

The tunnel is directed west towards Mosteiros on the westcoast.

 

The tunnel has a length of 1200 m. and the water is chanelled through it by means of a levada which leaves sufficient walkingspace- also in height!

Luckyly the constructors added a small sign on the wall every 10 meters indicating the distance, which made it possible to hide a cache inside the tunnel!

The path has some wet places of ( at our time in the end of August) 1-2 cm. water => no rubber boots or so necessary.

 

The cache is hidden 595 m. from the Sete Cidades entrance and thus 605 m. from the Mosteiros entrance !

 

Enjoy!
