Galeria Fernando Santos’s been going for 25 years and was the first to open in Rua Miguel Bombarda, which today is the site of Porto’s main cluster of galleries. It mainly works with established artists, such as Portugal’s own Nikias Skapinakis, Gerardo Burmester and Pedro Cabrita Reis, as well as foreign names such as Antoni Tàpies, Julian Schnabel and Santiago Ydáñez. But there’s room for up-and-coming artists, too.
