Comarcas of Asturias.

Asturias, an autonomous community in Spain, is divided into eight comarcas. These comarcas are not an administrative division of the autonomous community, and are only used as a system to homogenize the statistical data made by the Principality of Asturias.

The comarcas in Spain are a grouping of municipalities that are encouraged (but not required) to work together to achieve objectives. Comarca is a Spanish word roughly equivalent to the English word county.
