What should I wear?
This depends on the climate of your home country. In Portugal, there is some temperature difference between Lisbon and Porto, where it is usually colder. Temperatures south of Lisbon (Alentejo and Algarve) are generally even higher. In general, we advise you to wear comfortable clothes and shoes ​​and bring some protection from the rain. If you visit between November and March, be prepared for cooler temperatures (minimum 8-11ºC). Don'
t forget that Portugal has 850 km of coastline, so bring your bathing suit. See below the average temperatures and precipitation in Lisbon and Porto (North).
