Ermera is one of the districts of East Timor, located in the west-central part of the country. It has a population of 117,064 (Census 2010) and an area of 746 km2. Its capital is Gleno, which is located 30 km to the southwest of the national capital, Dili. The city of Ermera, also known as Vila Ermera, lies 58 km from the capital along the same road. In Marobo (Atsabe Subdistrict) are the remains of a hot springs bath from colonial times. The pool is still in use.[1]

Ermera is one of only two land-locked districts in East Timor, the other being Aileu. It borders Liquiçá District to the north, Dili District to the northeast, Aileu District to the east, Ainaro District to the southeast, and Bobonaro District to the west.
