Restaurant Monsanto (PT)

The Monsanto building is located on a hill outside Lisbon and this place gives a magnificent panoramic view over the city. The building was designed by architect Chaves da Costa as a restaurant and integrates several works of art: panels and reliefs by Querubim Lapa, paint by Luis Dourdil and tile of Manuela Madureira.
