The correct coordinates are 38.012957, 23.635928 -

Thanks, I've changed it

Just to flag this up in case it was missed on the Portugal thread, but here are some improved co-ordinates for Ensemble of Alvaro Siza's Architecture Works in Portugal

meltwaterfalls:
I've had a dig down into that Alvaro Siza proposal and have created a list of 22 buildings that seem likley to be included.

The first ten are mentioned by name in the proposal, the next ten are major buildings in municipalities mentioned in proposal, and the last two are well known buildings that I would imagine would be included, but the details seem to be missing from the proposal. I have a fair few other buildings that I may try to hunt down as well, but I haven't quite pinned down yet:

Building/ Municipality/ Co-ordinates
Bank in Oliveira de Azeméis/ Oliveira de Azeméis/ 40.838560, -8.477313
Santa Maria church of Marco de Canavezes/ Marco de Canavezes/ 41.188560, -8.145385
Adega Mayor/ Campo Maior/ 39.050100, -7.094356
Piscina das Mares/ Leça da Palmeira/ 41.192778, -8.707778
Casa de Chá da Boa Nova/ Leça da Palmeira/ 41.203020, -8.715001
Beires House/ Póvoa de Varzim/ 41.385483, -8.762296
Bank in Vila do Conde/ Vila do Conde/ 41.353196, -8.741629
Casa Avelino Duarte/ Ovar/ 40.862790, -8.644060
Escola de Educação de Setúbal/ Setúbal/ 38.519986, -8.838166
Pavilion of Portugal in Expo'98/ Lisboa/ 38.765829, -9.095285
Baixa Chiado Masterplan and Metro Station/ Lisboa/ 38.710521, -9.142089
Faculty of Architecture, University of Porto/ Porto/ 41.150383, -8.636518
Aleixo Offices (Architectural Practice)/ Porto/ 41.149284, -8.649420
Sao Bento Metro Station/ Porto/ 41.145101, -8.610886
Serralves/ Porto/ 41.159789, -8.659602
Boavista Building/ Porto/ 41.162599, -8.667288
Quinta da Malagueira housing estate/ Évora/ 38.568738, -7.925359
Library of the University of Aveiro/ Aveiro/ 40.631181, -8.659829
Cuatro Casas/ Matosinhos/ 41.185350, -8.685082
Piscina da Quinta da Conceição/ Matosinhos/ 41.197126, -8.686788
Viera De Castro House/ Famalicao/ 41.405606, -8.541914
Revigrés/ Águeda/ 40.531731, -8.449006

Additionally, for the time being perhaps we could move/ add to the Route of Magellan: First Around the World location point.

At the moment it is logically in the Straight's of Magellan, as the current proposal is light on specific locations, however that does mean that when clicking on a Portuguese T-List site the only location is in Chile on the other side of the globe.

Perhaps we can either make the point a place in Portugal or add a point(s) in Portugal in addition to the Straight's of Magellan one.
Two Portuguese based options:
~Arquivo Nacional Torre do Tombo, 38.754905,-9.156548 (An archive specifically mentioned in the official nomination.)
~ Discoveries Monument in Belem, 38.695979, -9.205386 (The nomination states it will include monuments and this seems the most appropriate one to focus on)

I may try and make an approximation using the details of his route (which never went to Portugal). However I think using one of the points above, or adding them to the current Chilean point will improve it as a holding map, until we get better info.

I've added these to a nice little map: https://www.worldheritagesite.org/tentative/id/6224
Thanks for the research

And the Magellan route as well: https://www.worldheritagesite.org/tentative/id/6212

It seems quite an unrealistic nomination. Portugal would need to organize a transnational serial nomination along the lines of the Corbusier sites. Very difficult to pull off, especially when there are little physical remains

Thanks for that Els

Yeah that Magellan one really is odd, it seems there is the kernel of an idea and they just submitted it to UNESCO before really thinking it through. I doubt it will ever get anywhere in its current state. The actual Portuguese sites are all associative or Archive collections, I think the World Heritage List is the wrong way to go.

Hey ho, it gets people thinking about the Portuguese golden age I guess.

For the Marine Sanctuaries in American Samoa there are actually at least 6 sites. You currently only point to the Rose Atoll.

Fagatele Bay -14.36413, -170.76404
Larsen Bay -14.36245, -170.75054
Aunu'u -14.28272, -170.55356
Ta'u -14.22564, -169.43663
Rose Atoll -14.54568, -168.15359
Swains Island -11.05522, -171.07822

There is another island popping out in the next few hundred years and this may be protected already as well but I forgot to ask at the Ocean Center.

But you copied the one from Ta'u -14.22564, -169.43663 wrong ;) No wonder only 5 dots appeared on the map.

During the planning of a long road trip to Romania I see that the Wooden Churches of Southern Malopolska are slightly wrong (Wiki and Unesco are also often wrong)

Coordinates should be

49.63061, 21.18608 Church of St. Philip and St. James the Apostles (Sekowa)
49.75732, 21.2275 Church of St. Michael the Archangel (Binarowa)

I'm not sure what happened, but the Costiera Amalfitana pin has migrated to the middle of the Bay of Naples.

I think this would be the best location, in Amalfi itself: 40.634205, 14.602564

For some reason I don't understand, the UNESCO coordinates for "The Archaeological site of Aigai" -
780-001 Ancient City and Necropolis of Aigai
are located way out to the furthest south of the inscribed area even beyond the Palace, Theatre and the prehistoric Necropolis. The point chosen by UNESCO/Greece seems to be the highest point within the inscribed area - where I would have thought that no one was likely to go
Google indicates a walk of 2.3kms to get there south from what is going to be the main target for most visitors- viz the "Great Tumulus" containing the tomb of Philip II (probably!!).
I would suggest that we alter this location to the coordinates of the Great Tumulus (this might be another example of where Nan's suggestion of "Points of Interest" could be useful as the actual POIs are quite spread around within the total area and are not really well represented by a single set of coordinates!!!)
The "centre" of the Tumulus is at - 40.487471, 22.319341
