An island town, Besaid is small and rather quiet, housing little more than a port, a temple of Yevon, and its own blitzball team, the Besaid Aurochs. It has recently gained fame as the home of the High Summoner Yuna and as a pleasant vacation spot, drawing crowds to the island in droves; its relaxed atmosphere and tropical scenery, however, allow it to retain its overall feeling of serenity.
The heart of Yevon, Bevelle is an ancient city, the largest and most grand in Spira. Its temple was one of many stops for summoners making their pilgrimage to Zanarkand, and over a thousand years ago, the city was at war with them, leading to the creation of Sin and the start of Yevon's teachings. Now it stands as the base of New Yevon, its long-buried secrets coming to light a little at a time.
A floating city located on the sky continent of Dorstonis, Bhujerba is supported by its wealth of magicite, making mining a key profession among its residents. It is a popular travel destination, and to cater to this, Parijanah guides dot its streets, always available to point a foreigner in the right direction. Under the rule of House Ondore, the city has long remained neutral in conflicts, with the exception of the current head Marquis Halim Ondore IV's stand against the Archadian Empire several years ago.
Bhujerba has its own rich culture and, as a result, its residents speak with a distinctive dialect, containing several words unfamiliar to those of other countries.
The secluded Black Mage Village is home to those black mages created by Kuja and Queen Brahne who escaped their fate of being used as tools of war and deigned to live more peaceful lives, as well as the Genomes of Terra, who left their destroyed home. In order to protect themselves, the mages built their home deep within a vast forest, and there they live in seclusion, only leaving to engage in what trading is necessary for their survival. Despite their distrust of strangers, the black mages have set up shops and an inn within their village, should a wandering traveler need their aid.
More an excavation site than a true village, the residents of Bone Village are researchers, digging for ancient bones and other artifacts that may give them insight into the past. They aren't selfish, however, allowing their rare visitors to join in the excavations for a fee, and allowing them to keep what treasures they may find.
The Realm of Eternal Rain is home to the Burmecians, a race of ratlike people who hold honor in the highest regard. The city is constructed entirely of stone, artfully inlaid with blue to give it a particularly elegant appearance, and as its title implies, rain falls constantly over the area. Burmecia was attacked and severely damaged by Queen Brahne's forces three years ago, but its citizens - as well as the survivors of its sister city, Cleyra - have since returned and repaired it.
The secluded holy mountain of the Kiltias. Bur-Omisace primarily draws visitors who follow the Light, though there have been occasions where its residents have taken in refugees with nowhere else to go. Led by the Gran Kiltias, the people of the mountain are pacifists, preferring to stay out of conflict if possible.
A well-known farmhouse which allows paying customers to breed and raise chocobos in their stables. A small family lives here, and they work together to take care of the birds and inform their patrons of the specifics of their trade.
All that now remains of the once-beautiful City of Illusion is a shattered ruin lying in the sand where the tree which housed it once stood. Cleyra was destroyed entirely by Odin at Queen Brahne's behest, but the survivors eventually returned to Burmecia, their ancestral home from which they split off after disagreeing with the Burmecians' pursuit of warfare.
Conde Petie is a village of dwarves, who greet travelers with an enthusiastic "Rally-Ho!" - but only allow them in if they receive the same greeting in return. Marriage is an important part of dwarf life - so important, in fact, that they don't allow anyone through their town unless they hold a wedding atop the Kirkboat, holy place and symbol of the village. The entire structure of Conde Petie is contained within one large building, built like a bridge atop a pair of roots from the Iifa Tree.
