Bonjour, cher Pedro,
Voilà une composition peu ordinaire avec la présence d'un bâtiment ayant pour toiture un sombrero !
De plus, l'architecte qui a conçu ce chapeau a su réaliser une fantaisie et une terrasse.
Bravo !

Hi Pedro,the architecht of this restaurant is a genius...ehehe...what a lovely roof,made in the typical mexican hat form! A perfect choice of point of view from above to show us this strange and lovely thing,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Pedro,
Designed to attract the attention of the passing motorist and it seems to work:-) I like the downward oblique point of view. The sombrero roof sort of mimics the background mountain peaks. Good colours and clarity despite the rather dull light.

Hello Pedro,
A very nice piece of architecture with this large hat on top of the corner of the restaurant. I like the high POV you found which includes a nice view of the mountains in the background.

Ciao Pedro, great view of fantastic and original restaurant, fine details and splendid clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
