Lisbon was first founded 3000 years ago by ancient Phoenicians (Arabic, Middle Eastern decent) and was favoured for its warm, tropical temperature and beaches. (McDonald 132) Lisbon has been through many battles and take-overs, including being taken over by North African Moors and Christian Spaniards in 1147, which would prove to be Lisbon’s permanent guests. Lisbon later suffered one of the worst earthquakes in Europe in 1755, which killed a third of Lisbon’s population and displaced more. As a result of Lisbon’s many settlers, the ethnicities of Lisbon are mixed, but mainly Spanish and Portuguese. After joining the European Union in 1970, Portugal and Lisbon became much more economically stable. (McDonald 167)
