Since the division by provinces in Spain and the division by "comarques" in Catalonia do not completely agree, the term "comarques of the province of Girona" would not be entirely correct. However, a list of the "comarques" that are included -totally or partially- in the province of Girona can be made:
Pla de l'Estany
Selva(all municipalities except Fogars de la Selva)
Cerdanya(only its eastern half)
**Osona (only three municipalities:
Espinelves, Vidràand Viladrau)
