The casual pavilion, snuggled into a rocky promontory on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, in the town of Leça da Palmeira, 6 miles north of Porto, was left empty by its municipal owners in 2011 and vandalized by thieves, who ripped out copper gutters and wiring for salvage, destroyed the roof and interiors, and left the structure open to the elements.
