Mainland Portugal and the Autonomous regions of Madeira and the Azores will turn their clocks back one hour at dawn, kicking off the beginning of winter.
The clocks are due to go back one hour at 02:00 on Sunday, the 29th of October, in mainland Portugal and in the Autonomous Region of Madeira. In the Autonomous Region of the Azores, the change will be made at 01:00.
The current time change regime is regulated by a directive (Community law) of 2000, which states that clocks are put forward and backward one hour each year on the last Sunday in March and the last Sunday in October, marking the beginning and end of summertime.
