TELEPHONES

Calling from Lisbon

Public phone booths abound in Lisbon, with the options to pay by coin, phone-card, and in some cases, credit card (although most are now phone-card only, on sale at any newsstand).

You may also choose to call from your hotel, but it can be fairly expensive.

Also, if you have agreed with your mobile phone company to allow roaming or international calling, you will have no problem using your mobile phone in Portugal.

Portugal's telephone system has achieved a state-of-the-art network with broadband, high-speed capabilities. The international country code is 351 and all Lisbon land lines start with 21. Mobile numbers start with a 9.
