    Default Monsanto's Panoramic Restaurant - Lisbon, Portugal


    On my latest visit to Lisbon, I've visited what's left of what was once an amazing building.
    It was built in the 1960's to be a restaurant.
    It is located in the Monsanto Natural Park and provides one of the best views over Lisbon.
    The building was built in a semi-circle shape to provide a panoramic view over the city and has got amazing artwork in ceramic panels, though some of it has been destroyed.
