On Wednesday March 26, we went driving through and checking out the peri-urban condition in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area. We drove around in the area between the Alfornelos and Odivelas subway stations. Lisbon Metropolitan Area [Área Metropolitana de Lisboa, or AML] is a territorial zone that includes 18 municipalities [concelhos] in Portugal. The smaller Grande Lisboa [Greater Lisbon] area is a subregion of the NUTS II Lisbon Region by its own right.
