Districts of São Tomé and Príncipe

São Tomé and Príncipe is divided into seven administrative districts since 1980.[1] Six are located on the main island of São Tomé while one (Pagué) covers the smaller island of Príncipe. Since 1995, the Pagué District has been replaced by the Autonomous Region of Príncipe.[2]
