The municipalities of Spain (Spanish: municipios, IPA: [muniˈθipjos], Catalan: municipi, Galician: concellos, Basque: udalerriak; sing. municipio) are the basic level of Spanish local government.

ach municipality forms part of a province which in turn forms part or the whole of an autonomous community (17 in total plus Ceuta and Melilla): some autonomous communities have additional second level subdivisions, such as comarcas (districts) or mancomunidades (commonwealths). There are a total of 8,118 municipalities in Spain, including the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla. In the Principality of Asturias, municipalities are officially named concejos (councils).
