Description Change this

This lookout point is part of the 117 km Pilgrim Road. Building in a remote place should generate an architecture able to age as if it were a natural element. So, we thought of a kind of hollowed stone, bent to rest calmly on the hillside, and whose only purpose is to offer shadows, cross-ventilation and a view over the path the pilgrims walked for a hundred kilometers to arrive there.
