Floating Streets Umbrellas in Portugal

Floating  Streets Umbrellas in Portugal

Every July, as part of Ágitagueda art festival, hundreds of umbrellas are hung over promenades in the streets of Águeda, a municipality in Portugal. The beautiful tradition started only 3 years ago, but has already earned world fame for the place.

The installation not only adds a vibrant splash of color to the otherwise plain streets, but also creates a much needed shade from the heat.
We collected some photos from the lucky tourists and residents of Águeda for you to enjoy. If you plan traveling to Portugal in July, make sure to stop by!
