Yes, you can, to any EU country. Both contributive unemployment benefits ´paro´ and non-contributive employment subsidy ´subsidio´ in practically all its varieties.
Meeting a set of requisites of course, having been registered as looking for work for a minimum of 4 weeks the first, having to register with a state unemployment agency in the other EU country within 7 days of arrival the second. Filling out paperwork beforehand of course.
For a maximum of 3 months, with possible renewal for another 3 months. Please beware that if you outstay the maximum period, you risk losing all remaining entitlements.

Be advised that a local INEM/SEPE office in a small town might not be familiar with this procedure and you might need to apply at a provincial head office instead.
