Electricity is supplied at 220 volts and the plugs follow the European system (with two pins).
Portugal is a member of the European Community, and uses the Euro as currency. Banks offer normal currency exchange services and most establishments accept credit and debit cards. ATMs, known as Multibanco, are abundant and very easy to find.
