Out in the vibrant city of Lisbon, Portugal remains an architectural gem that is in need of some tender love and care. Originally a thriving hip restaurant, the building is now an abandoned shell – with a surprising amount of style remaining. It provides one of the most spectacular views of the city skyline and of the surrounding landscape.[see_also]
The restaurant was called the “Panoramic Restaurant of Monsanto” (We know, bad name). It was designed by Chaves da Costa, and integrated several panels and reliefs by Querubim Lapa with tiles by Manuela Madureira. All of these names were thriving artists in their fields at the time. Now this landmark restaurant has been abandoned for ten years. Kickstarter anyone? With the help of some imaginative and motivated individuals, this place could quite possibly become the coolest spot in Lisbon. It’s located at the ‘Parque Florestal de Monsanto’ if you want to check it out.
