University of Tehran (02/02/2017) Iran (Islamic Republic of)

That one peaked my interest. I wonder if some members of the Iranian Heritage Ministry studied there. As it looks fairly unremarkable to me, except for a nice concrete gateway.

Also there was a pretty bold claim in the description
Description:
Tehran University is the first center for higher education in Iran that was founded in 1934 and is one of the oldest universities all around the world.

Some back of the fag packet maths indicates that there are at least 70 Universities in the World that are half a Millennium older than it. Even the nomination names three other already inscribed universities all of which are predate it (Coimbra by a mere 640 years)

I think that one may just be there to appease some people in the ministry.

The Colonial Transisthmian Route of Panamá (Ruta Colonial Transístmica de Panamá)

Looks like Panama has found a way out its Panama Viejo dilemma - hide the problem under a new serial site which include both Panama City bits, Portobelo and San Lorenzo too, and some routes inbetween.

Portugal (15)

I've tried to find locations for the 15 (semi-)new TWHS.
I did not succeed with:
- Montado (very large area, but is there a significant point of interest?)
- Magellan Route (seems to be a vague transboundary concept)
- Alvaro Siza's works (I found 2 of them in the places named to the right on the Unesco website, no idea which the other works are)
Ideas welcome of course.

I see Moldova is updating/clarifying a nomination? I noticed more criteria added.

Yeah there are 20 of them at the moment, so 5 more than when winterkjm first posted.

I'll take that Alvaro Siza one, though it is hard to pick out which specific sites are included.

When they were first announced I assumed the Historic Lisbon, Global City would include the Pomboline proposal in addition to a few of the others as well, but no it looks like they are looking at Seoul and London and trying to get four plus sites in one city.
