In the woods

Numa tarde nada solarenga e fotogénica, decidi ir até Monsanto à procura do antigo restaurante panorâmico, um edifício que, segundo dizem, tem a melhor vista de Lisboa, mas, infelizmente, isso não o salvou do completo abandono. Depois de muitas voltas e inversões de marcha, lá o encontrei e tirei estas fotografias. Queria ter tido a coragem de entrar, mas depois de ter visto um grupo de jovens a ser expulso do local, achei melhor não arriscar a minha sorte. Talvez noutro dia.

On a not so sunny and photogenic afternoon, I decided to go to Monsanto (a very big park in Lisbon) and look for an old panoramic restaurant that's been said to have the best view over Lisbon, but, unfortunately, that didn't save it from being completely abandoned. After many turns and U-turns, I finally found it and took these photos. I wish I had the guts to go in, but after seeing a group of boys being kicked out from the site, I though I shouldn't play with my luck. Maybe another day.

    1. Really sad. It closed doors because it wasn't that functional as a restaurant and it's been decaying over the years, but I truly believe nowadays someone with money could restore it and make something beautiful.
