I lived there some years ago... it is a beautiful country with wonderful people. I did not MD at the time, however, if it is like most of the European countries, as long as you are not removing a national treasure, you should be ok.... p.s. - the food and wine are MARVELOUS... stay out of the tourist traps.

I agree with RickO's assessment. Great wine, great food and great people.

At November 2008.


There has been some new legislation introduced recently which prohibits searching for archaeological material without a permit. To obtain a permit, please apply to the Ministry of Culture in Portugal .

Other countries, information only, please treat with caution!
