Spain uses the designation "autonomous" for two types of its administrative subdivisions:[1][2][3]

Autonomy is asymmetrical in Spain. Both the autonomous communities and the autonomous cities (collectively known as "the Autonomies") constitute the first order (highest) level of territorial organization of Spain. In addition, single-province autonomous communities also correspond to the second-level of territorial division of Spain (provinces), and the autonomous cities also correspond to the lowest level of territorial division of Spain (municipalities).
