Architectural Digest, 10th of April 2019
The American publication Architectural Digest highlighted the Luís de Camões street in Águeda as one of the most beautiful in the world!
As part of the AgitÁgueda festival, the Umbrella Sky Project appears in 2011 with hanging umbrellas on various streets of the city. Each year, between July and September, several of Águeda's iconic streets feature a cover of colorful umbrellas that give them a unique joy and dynamics. The city of Águeda is already a point of reference for tourism in the central region of Portugal and even throughout the country. There is a recognition for the city's streets which so many visitors and tourists already considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. This time it was recognized by the Architectural Digest: a publication on its website shows the city of Águeda, and more specifically Luís de Camões street, mentioned as a destination to visit.
Regarding this distinction, Edson Santos, Vice-President of the Municipality and responsible for Tourism, said that “The downtown of Águeda, and more specifically Luís de Camões street, has been the target of a strong intervention that has allowed it to reach a very special dynamics. This part of the city was abandoned and the businesses were closing, but at the time images of the streets run around the world, the economics grows and the streets are full of visitors and tourists! This tells us that we are on the right track and that in Águeda we must continue to focus on innovation combined with creativity as a way of differentiation, cultural enrichment and attracting visitors. ”
