   Not at all, Marcio they don´t use mini to our "galerias" as you intended to explain (I got it very well, by your wording).

   By looking up in the Ramdom House Dict. I found the following entry:

 

GALLERY- 1-A balcony in  theater, church, or other public building.

                   2- The uppermost of such balconies in a theather, usu. containing the         

cheapest seats.

                     3- The occupants of these seats.    (lembra alguma coisa galera? )

                     4- A group of spectators, as at a legislative session.

                     5- A room or a building devoted to exhibition of works of art.

                     6- A long covered area used as walk or corridor.

                     7- A long porch; veranda.

                     8- A large room or building used for photography, target practice etc.

 

 

    Well, well; I think that nr. 6 nears is closest to your explanation, however also used for vending purposes (has shops etc).

 

     Up to now, I only recall this word, but I recall indistinctly in my memory that I met a word that was synonymous with it, but, too bad that I didn´t jot down.

      If anyone can help vanquish our doubt, please help us out.

      For the time being gallery will do.

      That´s all folks.
