Every July such festival is held continuously in the city of Agueda, Where thousands of people are drawn to come to the city to enjoy some music concerts and art exhibitions. The color of umbrellas in last year’s festival appeared darker than the previous, with more primary colors, while this year we see a more subtle palette with sprinkles of pinks and purples.
