Decreto-Lei 14/2021, published on 12 February this year, makes clear changes to existing legislation. I see no lack of clarity, or any ifs/buts.
From 1 January 2022, only real estate investments in zones noted in Portaria 208/2017 are eligible for Golden Visas. The document is on pps 2-4 here:
This is a 2017 document, but it is the list referenced in Decreto-Lei 14/2021.
If you want to use the "Golden Visa" route for other locations (incl. Mafra) then you need to have completed the process at a notary by 31 December 2021 at the latest.
So, check the municipality name (which may differ from the town, as noted by a previous poster) and if it's on this list, you're basically fine; if it's not, the clock is ticking. As this law was written and came into effect "during COVID", it is unlikely to be the subject of any COVID-related extensions/allowances.
