Territorial Units of France

“The department is the key territorial unit of France; it corresponds to a county in the UK, a canton in Switzerland, in German its Landkreis, or a province in Spain. Departments (Départements) are an intermediate level of administration, smaller than regions (which are comprised of a number of départements), but larger than communes. The number prefix identifies the département on vehicle registrations, and is the first part of telephone numbers.”
