Administrative division

Portugal is divided in 18 Districts and two Autonomous Regions (Açores and Madeira). Each district is divided in municipalities. All municipalities (Concelhos) are further divided into parishes or sub-municipalities (Freguesias), except for the very small island of Corvo, Açores. There are 308 concelhos and 4260 freguesias.

For each municipality and sub-municipality the district/region is mentioned, and, when known, the municipality for the sub-municipalities.

Civic Heraldry

The districts have no separate arms, but use the arms of the capital city. The two autonomous regions have their own arms:
