Scope and content:
This project series documents the Monte Picoto hotel and restaurant in Braga, Portugal. While the records were held in the office's archives, this project was assigned the number 6/80. The office assigned the date 1981 to this project.

Proposed as a hotel and restaurant, this project was designed for a competition on the most fitting real estate for Monte Picoto. Competitors had leeway to decide on the function and form of the real estate. The competition was administered by the entrepreneur José Veloso Braque and promoted by the City Council. A winner for the competition was never declared and the project was not built.

Documenting this project are documents about the competition from the Camara Municipal de Braga, photographs, elevations, studies for the project site, and sketches of the proposed hotel and restaurant.
