Culturgest Porto

Bookstore Meets Galley Meets Bank
Porto's main boulevard is beautiful, but stepping inside the Culturgest Art Bookstore is really something else. The space is housed on the first floor of bank who, in partnership with the Portuguese government, supports this unique art bookstore and associated cultural initiatives. The bookstore is carefully curated with a wonderful selection of art and art criticism books. The select volumes are displayed simply, making the space feel more like a gallery than a bookstore. But the real show stopper is the building itself. Build around a hexoganal atrium in a circular building, the space is covered in pink, white and green, blue, yellow and white marble. A lovely place to spend a quiet moment reflecting on beauty.
