Portugal’s Summer Umbrella Sky

Want to see more of these colorful parasols? Be sure to visit the hashtag #Agueda as well as Águeda’s location page!

Dozens of beautiful, brightly colored umbrellas line a shopping promenade in Águeda—a small town located just south of Porto in Portugal. While these photogenic parasols are helpful at protecting against the sun’s rays and shielding patrons from rainfall, the colorful display is actually an art installation and initiative by the council in Águeda for AgitÁgueda, the town’s art festival!
