(visited by Angel Hermosilla)

30-Jun-2001 -- I have returned a second time and I have taken the photographs.

02-Jun-2001 -- On Saturday 2 June of 2001, I was at the intersection of parallel 40º North and meridian 3º West. The name of the place is Tarancón. It is some 232 metres away from a restaurant called Pilcar. Close to it there is a sweet shop, where it is possible to buy some typical sweets, like "Borrachos". They are on the edge of the former N-III Valencia-Madrid road.

The intersection point is on farming soil, and I found very near (at 82 metres) a cylinder laid on the ground. I suspect that the cylinder could have been a landmark, put right at the intersection point by someone a long time ago; and later the owner of the terrain could move that stone in order to get more place for crops.

The accuracy was 5 metres in my Garmin Etrex. I didn't take photographs.
