The Lisbon Portugal Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) under construction in the civil parish of Moscavide e Portela, in the Portuguese municipality of Lisbon.[3]

The intent to construct a temple in the Portuguese capital was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on 2 October 2010, during the church's semi-annual general conference.

On 22 October 2015, the church announced that the temple would be constructed in the Parque das Nações area of Lisbon, along Avenida Dom João II. A groundbreaking ceremony, to signify the beginning of construction, took place on 5 December 2015, with Patrick Kearon presiding.[4] The groundbreaking was broadcast live to local church meetinghouses.[4]
