Lisbon Portugal Temple
On October 2, 2010, at the commencement of the 180th general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Thomas S. Monson announced the construction of a new temple in Lisbon Portugal. This will be the first temple for Portugal. Latter-day Saints in the country currently travel to the nearest temple in Madrid, Spain, a 400-mile drive.
Portugal currently has 6 stakes and 4 districts. Local congregations are called wards. They are under the administration of groups of wards, called stakes. Congregations too small to be wards are called branches. Groups of branches are organized into districts.
