Both available in Spain (more commonly as dry goods than pre-cooked, specially pintas), but I've very rarely seen them in other European countries; I expect that at least black beans would be available in Portugal, don't know about pintas. Both available in bodegas and Spanish-specialty stores through Europe, just not so much in regular supermarkets; there was one in Liege where you could clearly see which were the items the local Spanish population got homesick about, and beans were a big chunk of their stock.
