Águeda. The pictures speak for themselves.
Every year, the city of Águeda decorates their streets with these “floating” umbrellas from July to September and it really is a sight to see!
We visited Águeda in the evening, after the sun was already on it’s way down, but no matter what, as long as there’s daylight, the streets are absolutely stunning and saturated with the color from the umbrellas. When the sun is high in the sky, it casts the prettiest colorful shadows onto the streets through the umbrellas. The umbrella’s really are as colorful and beautiful as they look in the pictures, if not more! The city streets are just all full of art and bright colors, its gorgeous!
As the sun went down we walked over to enjoy the festival Águeda was having that night. They had a bunch of awesome food stands set up and Portuguese street food is AMAZING.
This city was definitely one of my favorites on this trip. If you’re ever in Portugal, Águeda is a must-go!
