Colourful Floating Umbrellas Installation in Águeda

Would love to feel yourself like in a fairy tale princess? Visit small streets of Águeda, a Portuguese town, when they are decorated with colorful umbrellas magically floating in mid-air.

It goes without saying that public outdoor art installations are always fantastic but the following umbrellas’ project is simply jaw dropping. Tons of people can’t take their eyes from umbrellas of various colors looming above the streets.

These umbrellas create a great decoration find and also provide people with much appreciated shade. All the umbrellas are floating on the wires.
All the pictures of the umbrellas were captured by Patricia Almeida with iPhone.

I love when cities incorporate in public areas! Especially in such an amazing way!
