Visit the Umbrella Sky Project
Every summer, thousands of striking, colourful umbrellas are suspended above the streets of Águeda, creating a glorious canopy of hues upon which to feast your eyes.
The Umbrella Sky Project was created in 2011 by the Portuguese art collective Sextafeira Produções. It’s since become a popular annual event, drawing in visitors from all over the globe.
The pretty umbrellas are strategically hung to provide shade and shelter in the city centre, which is ideal for a stroll on a hot summer’s day. Grab your favourite person and camera and take some Instagram-worthy photos with this eye-catching kaleidoscope of colours as your backdrop.
