The Republic of New Granada was a centralist republic consisting primarily of present-day Colombia and Panama with smaller portions of today's Ecuador, and Venezuela. It was created after the dissolution in 1830 of Gran Colombia. It was later abolished in 1858 when the Granadine Confederation was created.


The territory of the Republic was divided into provinces. Each province was composed of one or more cantons, each canton was divided into several districts parish.

Likewise, the Republic covered some territories in the peripheries of the country.
