At only 140 m sq, the lookout point provides visitors traveling the Ruta del Pelegrino a brief respite from their arduous journey. It also comprises one part of a larger corridor studded with sustainable architectural projects [5] that in no way detract from the ecological or historical integrity [6] of this very important event.

Albeit a simple design, we find it very beautiful and inspiring.
