Is there another name for this area? You'd think I'd know, having lived there, but I can't recall... 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. - Todd VerBeek 12:32, 8 July 2006 (EDT)
