The MMIPO MMIPO - Museu da Misericórdia do Porto offers a space dedicated to organizing events - The Gallery of Benefactors.

Situated on the ground floor of the museum, the Gallery of Benefactors has about 300 square meter of floor area in a single space in downtown Porto. This is a gallery with two floors, with the top consisting of a veranda that surrounds the room. The glass and iron cover is of pyramidal shape and is supported on eight columns, which rest on top of eight others downstairs.

The Gallery of Benefactors like the neighbouring building - the Mercado Ferreira Borges - Is a fine example of Iron Architecture, a technique associated with the use of new materials, namely iron, steel, glass and stone, which eventually imposed new architectural solutions more fitting to the characteristics of industrial civilization.

Today, the Gallery has the capability to host concerts, temporary exhibitions, conferences, corporate events, etc.
