Thesprotia (Greek: Θεσπρωτία) is one of the fifty-one prefectures of Greece. It is within the Epirus periphery. The capital is in Igoumenitsa. It is bounded with Albania to the north, the prefecture of Ioannina to the east and Preveza in the south. It is one of the smallest prefectures in population.

The provinces are small and there are four of them.

Much of the prefecture are mountainous while farmlands most of them with gridded roads and ditches are within the valleys in the central, southern and the western part.

A new highway which began construction in 1996 which links all the way to Thessaloniki. The construction was halfway in the 1990s and was fully paved in the 2000s. Via Egnatia was first opened to traffic in 2004 with thousands of people cheering and celebrating the opening as they stand next to the superhighway south of Igoumenitsa. There is a probability of a bridge to Corfu which is currently unplanned and unscheduled. Main roads are GR-19 and GR-6.

Igoumenitsa is the Port of Corfu which serves ferry routes to the islands of Corfu, Antipaxoi, and Paxoi.
