If your gonna need it to Spend money only and use your recieved money also for purchasing then you can buy a virtual credit card online and can get your paypal done ( but you cannot withdraw as you mentioned you do need )
Or just use the advice of alexjackson
Nowadays I can use Paypal to buy and sell stuff, I just can't withdraw money to a Portuguese bank account.
I've been investigating opening an account in the USA, UK or Spain for instance, but it seems a rather nasty affair to do it.
I was thinking of opening my own web shop with a shopping system supported by Paypal, but this exclusion of Portuguese bank accounts is a huge drawback... really don't know what to do
