Galeria São Mamede is an Art Gallery based in Portugal in three different locations. Even with a small country we wanted to reach as many people as possible – so having a physical space in Lisbon, Oporto and the Algarve made perfect sense. Of course it didn’t start that way – we began in Lisbon – and grew from there.

We are an Art Gallery based in Portugal with three addresses in Lisbon, Oporto and the Algarve.  We began in Lisbon and grew from there.

Our mission here at São Mamede is to show our artists work to the biggest audience possible. We believe in their talent and feel they should be recognized. After investing in Portugal – we have come to realize that our artists have enough quality to be known everywhere else – and so this blog is born. And also one or two social media networks came along.

Of course, being big supporters of culture, we will be talking about everything we think you should not miss. Our artists are not the only talented people out there, and it is very important to acknowledge other people’s talents as well.

Expect exhibitions – big and small, – cultural events and happenings inside of Portugal and out. Overall we truly hope you enjoy going through this blog, discovering our artists and much more.
