Provinces of Colombia

Colombia is divided into 32 departments and these in turn are divided into municipalities, although some receive the special category of district. However, there are also provinces, a generic name applied to provinces, districts, regions and subregions. These are generally internal administrative authorities of the departments, more historical than legal. Most of the Colombian provinces have this kind of subdivision; those which do not are the departments of Amazonas, Arauca, Caqueta, Casanare, Choco, Guainia, Guaviare, Putumayo, San Andres y Providencia, Vaupes and Vichada.
