Concelho (Portuguese pronunciation: [kõˈsɐʎu]), in the Portuguese language, is the word municipality, when referring to the territory. The word município (Portuguese pronunciation: [muniˈsipiu]) is used when municipality means the organ of State. This differentiation is still in use in Portugal and some of its former overseas provinces but is no longer in use in Brazil.
