The currency in Portugal is the euro, which makes it a very worry-free destination for many other Europeans to visit when it comes to money matters (it is the currency of 13 European countries, used by 315 million people). In order to recognize the euro symbol, look for an "E" crossed by two parallel horizontal lines (€). The euro started with a circulation of seven bank notes and eight different coins: bank notes of 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 euros, and coins of 2 and 1 euros and 50, 20, 10, 5, 2, and 1 cents. Coins and notes both have a common European side, along with a specific national side, but can be used in all countries that accept the euro. Before the euro was introduced, Portugal's national currency was the escudo, and many Portuguese still use the escudo when talking amongst themselves, particularly when describing a large sum of money. 1 euro = 200.482 escudos.
