This is a list of mayors of Lisbon (Portuguese: Presidente da Câmara Municipal de Lisboa, CML, literally: "President of the Municipal Chamber of Lisbon", and also Portuguese: Presidente do Município de Lisboa, literally: "President of the Municipality of Lisbon"), the capital city of Portugal, and also the most populated.

This office is considered one of the most important in Portugal's politics, even more sought than the office of minister (following António Costa's resignation from a ministerial position to dispute the 2007 elections, which he won).
