The Portuguese capital has a long history, filled with kings, discoveries, tradgedies and and rebuilding. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in western Europe. After the region was settled by the Celts, it was then founded by the Phoenicians as its shown in Lisbon historical map. They established a historical settlement called Ulissipo, which was then conquered by the Greeks and Carthaginians.

In 205 BC, the Romans won the Second Punic War against the Carthaginians and occupied the historical city of Lisbon, calling it Olissipo. Ancient Lisbon was integrated into the Roman province of Lusitania, but when the Roman Empire collapsed, it was invaded by Germanic tribes and was controlled by the Kingdom of the Suebi until 585 as its mentioned in Lisbon historical map.

In 711, the Islamic Moors invaded the historical Peninsula, including Lisbon as youcan see in Lisbon historical map. They renamed the city al-Usbuma. In 789, Alfonso II of Asturias managed to reconquer Lisbon until 808. Finally, the Christians retook the city in 1147, led by Afonso I and supported by a fleet of the second crusade. From the fifteenth century onwards, the port of Lisbon became one of the most important in the world. During this period, the Casa da Guiné e Mina (a group of warehouses and customs offices) was established in the capital.

The vintage valley in which the heart of Lisbon now lies was, in prehistoric times, the bed of a forked branch of the Tagus River as its shown in Lisbon vintage map. (The subway now forks at the same spot.) No evidence has been uncovered to show who were the first residents on the hills surrounding the vintage valley.

It seems likely that the vintage city of lisbon was founded about 1200 BCE as a trading station by the far-ranging Phoenicians, there is no unassailable proof of the story. Lisbon city ancient name, Olisipo (Ulyssipo), may be derived from the Phoenician alis ubbo (“delightful little port”) or from the legend that the city’s founder was Odysseus (see Lisbon vintage map).

The Lisbon Portugal Temple site sits in the northeastern section of the vintage city near the modern parish of Parque das Nações as you can see in Lisbon vintage map. Once a nondescript industrial area, the Parque das Nações neighborhood was redeveloped for the 1998 Lisbon World Exposition (known as Expo '98), featuring the theme: The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future. Today, Parque das Nações is a thriving hub of leisure, commercial, and residential activity on the Tagus River, boasting famed venues that include the Lisbon Oceanarium, the Vasco de Gama Tower, the twin São Gabriel and São Rafael towers, the Parque Das Nações Marina, the MEO Arena, the Vasco de Gama Center (shopping mall), and the Vasco de Gama Bridge.
