Hundreds of Floating Umbrellas Above a Street in Agueda, Portugal

If you come to Águeda, a municipality in Portugal, during the month of July, you may see hundreds of colorful umbrellas floating above some streets. They are hung over promenades giving pedestrians a nice shade and something cool to look at.

Spotted by My Modern Met, these photos were taken by Patricia Almeida and Diana Tavares. Although these photographers were not directly involved with the creation of the installation, without them, most of us wouldn’t even know about it. So thanks to them for sharing these beautiful photos!

“I felt like a kid, amazed by all that color!” – says Patricia who titled her photos “Umbrella Roof” and the “Sky of Umbrellas”.

The street looks amazing, doesn’t it?
