07-Jul-2009 --

My second confluence, but my first in Portugal! The confluence is near a small village called Cadafais. It’s a valley with lots of grapevines. I’m a Geocacher (TNT_Duck), so I climb to the top of one of the mountains around, to do a cache (MGTC Cadafais).

The 39º / 9º is 10 meters away from the border of the “Quinta do Palhas”. It’s full with huge vegetation, and the nearest you can go is from inside the “Quinta do Palhas”. I talked with the person in charge, who kindly allowed me to enter the farm and go as near as I could to the confluence (+/- 10 meters). I took the pictures, said thank to the man in charge and left.
