Azambuja is a village in the district of Lisbon, located in the historic central region of Ribatejo, which constituted a former province in the center-south of the country.
The central village is located on the edge of the arable land of the alluvial plains of the Tagus, constituting the immediate surroundings of the village a beautiful rural and agrarian landscape.
We do not know for sure since when the territory of present-day Azambuja has been inhabited. However, due to the scattered settlement of the pre-Roman tribes, we can assume that the first settlements in this area were made by the oppidan and lusitanian turduli.
Like the rest of the Peninsula, this territory was under the influence of the Roman Empire and later under Arab rule. Its current layout is probably the result of the Christian repopulation in the Middle Ages and later modifications made during the Modern and Contemporary Ages.
