Did you see it fly to expose the hindwings? It could be. Looks like either an Oedipoda or Spingonotus species.

Judging by the shape of pronotum - it is from genus Oediopda. I'm not sure what other species are there in Portugal, but if I saw this in N-Europe than I would easily call this Oedipoda caerulescens (Blue-winged Grasshopper).
