There are boundless ways to effectively frame a landscape, though la Ruta del Peregrino Lookout is particularly notable for its own spectacular structure.

The cylindrical concrete monument sweeps tourists up to a panoramic vantage point with an uninterrupted vista of the Mexican landscape, while a view of the edifice itself is quite breathtaking. HHF Architects designed the contemporary roofless rotunda as one of eight structures that line the 117km Central American pilgrimage route. An oasis amidst the rugged terrain, this tremendous structure allows ample shelter beneath where groups of travelers can pitch tents to stay the night.

Despite its robust construction, HHF's la Ruta del Peregrino Lookout has an undeniable grace created in its smooth arches, elegant curves and the way its forms emulate the nature around it. Stats for Contemporary Coliseum Observatories Trending: Older & Chilly
