Umbrella Street is located between Linares Street and Sagarnaga Street, at the end of the famous Calle de las Brujas and where the iconic Coca Museum is also located.
Hi visitor, welcome to our blog!
Due to the Covid pandemic, worldwide tourism was affected at every level. Bolivia was not the exception, and suddenly our most emblematic and colorful streets became desolated, dull, and lifeless. Sagarnaga street; which welcomed visitors from all over the world was also quiet for a long time.
As a proud business that started in La Paz, L.A.M Bolivia took on the task of reviving and restoring our beloved streets after the confinement. Our goal was to create or recreate a piece of artwork that is bold and attractive to all visitors. We were inspired by the Umbrella Sky project that started in Águeda, Portugal in 2012 and now is displayed in various cities worldwide.
80 umbrellas suspended across the street
We started by suspending 16 colored umbrellas across. We mixed the umbrellas with alpaca wool pompoms. Now we have more than 80 umbrellas suspended across the street. They give the impression that they are floating therefore we have seen many creative and amazing pictures from our visitors.
The public reception fills us with joy. Every day dozens of visitors are spectators of the L.A.M decoration. We greatly appreciate your comments and love through the social networks of the now called “Calle de las Paraguas”. We hope to bring more decorations and improvements that dazzle and cause an equally attractive impact for the public soon.
