It is formed of five comarques: Baix Llobregat, Barcelonès, Maresme, Vallès Occidental and Vallès Oriental. It has been suggested by local authorities that Alt Penedès and Garraf should form a separate administrative entity called Vegueria del Penedès, as Penedès was a historical territory, or vegueria, with two comarques: Baix Penedès and Anoia. To a large extent coincides with the Barcelona metropolitan area.
Àmbit metropolità is the most populous vegueria with 5,012,961 inhabitants, and a density of 1,549 inhabitants/km2.
