Freguesias of Macau

The following is a list of the seven parishes of Macau, also known in Portuguese as freguesias (sing. freguesia). Under Portuguese rule, they were administrative subdivisions of the municipalities. After the 1999 handover to China, they are still officially recognized divisions but for symbolic reasons only.
