"Sol de inverno" ("Winter sun") was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1965, performed in Portuguese by Simone de Oliveira.

The song is in the chanson style, popular in the early years of the Contest. de Oliveira takes the role of a woman whose lover is ending their relationship, and tells him how she feels. She compares her situation to that of the winter sun, singing that she has "no warmth".

The song was performed twelfth on the night, following France's Guy Mardel with "N'avoue jamais" and preceding Italy's Bobby Solo with "Se piangi, se ridi". At the close of voting, it had received 1 point - Portugal's first in Contest history - placing 13th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 1966 contest by Madalena Iglésias with "Ele e ela".
