Is there another name for this area? You'd think I'd know, having lived there, but I can't recall... (WT-en) Majnoona 12:12, 8 July 2006 (EDT)

It may depend on when you lived there. This is what the Portuguese Tourism Board calls the region (though of course they tend to spell it "Lisboa Região"). According to Wikipedia, the Portuguese NUTS (which stands for Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics; I kid you not) has been revised recently to recognize these regions (deprecating the district system which the CIA Factbook still reports), with the possible goal of giving them more political autonomy. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 12:32, 8 July 2006 (EDT)
Shouldn't Ericeira, Mafra and Peniche go to Central Portugal given our quite narrow definition of the Lisbon Region following NUTS 2? PrinceGloria (talk) 07:26, 23 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]
PS. The [www.visitportugal.com Portuguese Tourist Board], which uses the same division into NUTS as we do, has pretty much answered my question with their webpage - Ericeira and Mafra should stay in the Lisbon Region, Peniche should go to Centro.
