Provinces of Greece

The provinces of Greece (Greek: επαρχία, "eparchy") were sub-divisions of some the country's prefectures.

Before the Second World War, there were 139 provinces, and after the war, with the addition of the Dodecanese Islands, their number grew to 147. According to the Article 7 of the Code of Prefectural Self-Government (Presidential Decree 30/1996), the provinces constituted a "particular administrative district" within the wider "administrative district" of the prefectures.
