Lisbon from Up there| Panorâmico de Monsanto

I bring you a restaurant, but this time, an abandoned one, with broken glass but still a building with a lot of charm and amazing views of Lisbon.

Built in 1968 at Parque Florestal de Monsanto, Monsanto Panoramic Restaurant is a building ofseven thousand square meters, designed by the architect Costa Chaves.

It has several works of art, panels and reliefs of Querubim Lapa and tiled Manuela Madureira damaged by time andvandalism. Unfortunately, the former restaurant, which was once disco, bingo, office and warehouse building materials, has been closed for over 10 years and would need 7 million euros to be restored.

I leave you with photographs taken by myself and a few black and whites of how the restaurant looked like in 1968.
