Waterfall restaurant in Angola

As a regular reader of this web site, It was only now that I register myself. The reason is pretty simple: I finally purchase a decent camera to start uploading pics and because, my brother did an amazing finding that I would like to share with you guys.

Context:

On a business trip to Angola, he took a small tourist ride to the interior of this country. And on the waterfalls of "Duque de Bragança" a strange building caught his attention on the other side of hill.

After some time he went there again to check it out.

He took some pictures and when he returned to Portugal and showed to the rest of my family, some members recognized that building and provided some pictures taken in the 1970's.
After the independence of Angola in '74, in was completely abandoned.

Anyway, the land where this building stands was purchased by a company who plans to demolish it. The thing is that, it is one of the finest examples of modern Portuguese architecture in Angola and it should be restored. It would reveal some maturity to one of the fastest growing economies in the world.  

Hope you enjoy.
