Thorigny-sur-Marne is a commune in the Seine-et-Marne department in the Île-de-France region in north-central France.

The commune is a level of administrative division in the French Republic. French communes are analogous to civil townships and incorporated municipalities in the United States and Canada, Gemeinden in Germany or comuni in Italy. The United Kingdom has no exact equivalent, as communes resemble districts in urban areas, but are closer to parishes in rural areas where districts are much larger. Communes are based on historical geographic communities or villages and are vested with significant powers to manage the populations and land of the geographic area covered. The communes are the fourth-level administrative divisions of France.

Seine-et-Marne Department of France

Seine-et-Marne is a French department, named after the Seine and Marne rivers, and located in the Île-de-France region.
