Subdivisions Municipality

In Spain traditionally and historically, some autonomous communities are also divided into comarcas (Spanish: , sing. comarca).[note 1] Some comarcas (e.g. comarques of Catalonia) have a clearly defined status, are regulated by law and even their comarcal councils have some power.

In some other cases (e.g. mancomunidad (commonwealth), like the Taula del Sénia, the only legal formula that has allowed those comarcas to manage their public municipal resources meaningfully.

There is even a comarca, the Cerdanya that is divided between two states, the southwestern half being counted as a comarca of Spain, while the northeastern half is part of France.

In English, a comarca is equivalent to a district, county, area or zone.
