Campolide is a Portuguese civil parish (freguesia) in the municipality of Lisbon. It was created on February 7, 1959.

Campolide was the site of a major battle on 5 September 1833, when the forces of Dom Miguel attacked those of Dom Pedro, as Pedro attempted to wrest back control of Portugal from his brother.[1]
