Map of the Peruvian provinces per region

The provinces of Peru, known in Spanish as provincias, are the second-level administrative subdivisions of the country. They are divided into districts (Spanish: distritos). There are 195 provinces in Peru, grouped into 25 regions except for the Lima Province which does not belong to any region. This makes an average of 7 provinces per region. The region with the fewest provinces is Callao (one) and the region with the most is Ancash (twenty).

While provinces in the sparsely populated Amazon rainforest of eastern Peru tend to be larger, there is a large concentration of them in the north-central area of the country. The province with the least number of districts is Purus Province, with just 1 district. The province with the most districts is Lima Province, with 43 districts. The most common number of districts per province is 8, a total of 29 provinces share this number of districts.
