Parishes of Grenada

Part of the Windward Islands group and located south of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and north of Trinidad and Tobago, GRENADA is administratively divided into parishes named after saints, which is the case for Dominica (previous post) and other Caribbean island countries as well. Located on the main Grenada island, these seven parishes are Saint Andrew, Saint David, Saint George (Saint George's), Saint John, Saint Joseph, Saint Mark, and Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick includes multiple small islands in its northern extent. In addition, Grenada's northernmost region is considered to be a dependency. Featuring multiple small islands, this dependency is named Carriacou, or Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Grenada's capital, St. George's, is not surprisingly located on the western coast of St. George Parish. More information about this island country can be found in my Grenada post.
