22 Nominations submitted to UNESCO to replace Portugal's tentative list.
Wow, I think I make that seven in Lisbon
Actually I think that article has got something wrong as there seem to only be 19 sites in their list rather than 22 (either that or they don't have a sub-editor that can use punctuation properly - I'm on no moral high ground on that one
I think a lot of those Lisbon sites are part of one bigger site. I was struggling to see how they could nominate the Lower Town as one site and the whole city as another.
I think this is the breakdown of the 19, though my Portuguese isn't up to much so I could be wrong:

) and the Park and Buildings of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
