Friends of Almagreira House well reunited with the news of our blog dedicated to holidays in Portugal. Today we are going to find out what the Portuguese dialling code is, which is the combination of numbers to dial before any phone number you are going to call. In fact, if you have chosen a comfortable accommodation in Baleal for your surf & relax week and you want to book your favorite restaurant in Peniche, all you have to do is dial the Portuguese area code before the desired number and proceed with the reservation.
This will be useful in any situation, with the exception of the emergency numbers, which are international and designed for easy and immediate use.
Enjoy the reading.
