In the mid-1960s they opened this gallery named 'Grandes Galerias' that cut through Avenida São João through to Rua 24 de Maio. It was supposed to be something like a shopping-centre but it stood half-empty for more than 10 years. Then, when the downtown area had already descended into decay this particular gallery 'took off' and now its shop-spaces are probably filled to capacity. It panders to young Blacks, punks and rock'n'rollers and it is known as Galeria do Rock (Rock's Gallery).
