For anyone visiting Portugal please be aware that very few maps exist (other than road maps) and the one's that do are not that readily available so you really do need to plan ahead.

Addresses below for buying in Portugal or http://www.stanfords.co.uk/ in the UK hold some maps and will order in but there seemed to be a massive time delay getting them when I did this four years ago.

If anyone stumbles on some decent digital mapping for Portugal please let me know!

There are a few apps for your iphone or android that are free. I have a topo map for the whole of Europe that was free called 'Topo Maps'. You can download it through itunes (after creating an account) for free. It has a searchable database & works with the phones GPS & giro. Best to let the phone download the map of the area you need at home via wiFi at home first otherwise you have to download this via G3 and some areas can be a bit dodgy signal-wise when out in the field. The phone will retain the data, so zoom down and it'll build up a useable extremely detailed (OS qualiy) topo map in you r hand!
Another UK online store like Stanfords offers similar military type maps:
 http://www.mapsworldwide.com/125_000_maps_1295d0.htm


One other downloadable/printable map service is here:
http://mapstor.com/map-sets/overview-maps/europe.html#maps-500k-preview      Looks like 4USD is the going price for each map.

Hope this info helps,
