Nantes Métropole (638,931 inhabitants in 2016; 52,336 ha) was created in January 2015, replacing the previous Communauté urbaine Nantes Métropole.
The Syndicat intercommunal à vocations multiples de l'agglomération nantaise (SIMAN), created in 1982, became a district (a former type of intermunicipal structure) in 1992, as District de l'agglomération nantaise). The Communauté urbaine de Nantes was founded in 2001; it was renamed to Nantes Métropole as soon as 2004 but kept the status of Communauté urbaine until 2015.
Nantes Métropole is composed of 24 municipalities: Nantes, Basse-Goulaine, Bouaye, Bouguenais, Brains, Carquefou, La Chapelle-sur-Erdre, Couëron, Indre, Mauves-sur-Loire, La Montagne, Orvault, Le Pellerin, Rezé, Saint-Aignan-Grandlieu, Saint-Herblain, Saint-Jean-de-Boiseau, Saint-Léger-les-Vignes, Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, Sainte-Luce-sur-Loire, Sautron, Les Sorinières, Thouaré-sur-Loire, and Vertou.
