We came for the umbrellas - and were not disappointed.

We only came to this small alley to see the "Umbrella Sky" project, and we enjoyed it a lot.
The alley is covered with countless colorful umbrellas and the photo-ops are literally endless.
On a funny note, it actually started raining while we visited the alley and we couldn't tell until we left. :)

We loved to see the "Umbrella Sky Project" at Village Royal!
Apr 2019 • Family
Le Village Royal is an open-air shopping passage that connects no25 rue Royale to no24 Rue Boissy d'Anglas in the affluent district that developed around the Madeleine Church and home to high-end luxury products and designer boutiques.

Since early February 2019, Le Village Royal the "Umbrella Sky Project" ... 800 colorful umbrellas.
Behind this project we have Patricia Cunha. Since 2011, the Portuguese artist has been enhancing neighborhoods all over the world by setting up many colorful umbrellas. After Arles, Carcassonne, Toulouse and even Béziers in France, as well as Tokyo, Seoul, Saint-Petersburg and more recently Pensacola, it’s Paris’ turn to welcome these legendary umbrellas originally coming from the city of Águeda in south Porto. This is where a group led by Patricia Cunha has been hanging hundreds of colorful umbrellas for the very first time.

Chic arty passage for once in April
Apr 2019 • Solo
In the heart of luxury lies this little passage which over the years became what it is today. Nice shops, restaurants... all chic all expensive. For once this April with little money and a good idea was created a colorful passage with umbrellas.... Compulsory Selfie to prove you are in Paris

Umbrella Sky Project.. beautiful
Apr 2019 • Family
This is well worth visiting.. on a sunny day the colours of the umbrellas and the light make for a beautiful exhibition and an atmospheric wander around the (expensive) shops.

There are also some bronze statues/ artworks by Dirk de Keyser until the end of April.

Colorful Umbrellas Overhead

Mary Poppins would have been at home in this uncovered pedestrian passage between rue Royale and rue Boissy d'Anglas. About 800 umbrellas are suspended in the air above visitors. They drew me in as I started to walk by on rue Royale. Their vivid yellow, green, red, blue and orange hues brightened the cloudy March day and I wondered why they hung there. This umbrella sky turned out to be an installation by artist Patricia Cunha. Since 2011, she has been bringing this whimsy to various neighborhoods around the world.

I doubt I would have entered Village Royal, one of the streets behind the Madeleine Church in the 8th arrondissement, had it not been for those umbrellas. The stores in this mini-mall are quite upscale and include Chanel, Dior and Baby Dior. I noticed just one cafe in the short thoroughfare and customers sat at most of its outside tables.

During my visit, another exhibition was in progress. Featuring contemporary sculpture of women by Dirk de Keyzer, the pieces appeared throughout the passage at ground level and attracted as much attention with their eccentricity as the umbrellas. Many visitors stopped to take selfies with these works

Village Royal is open Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and closed on Sunday. The nearest Metro stops are Madeleine and Concorde on Lines 8 and 12. Sculptures will be on display through April 28 and the umbrellas through July 4, 2019.
