Portugal gave up their Escudos in 2002 and adopted the Euro. There are cashpoints (multibancos in Portugal) all over the city, as well as at the airport. If you don’t have Euros on you, you can withdraw them directly from a cash machine, or else exchange your notes at a bureaux de change (exchange office) at the airport, in town or at a local bank. The Euro comes in seven paper denominations, numbering 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500. There are eight Euro coins, with a value of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents, as well as a one and two Euro coin. 100 cents comprise one Euro.
