In the colonial caste system of Spanish America and Spanish Philippines, a peninsular (, pl. peninsulares) was a Spanish-born Spaniard or mainland Spaniard residing in the New World or the Spanish East Indies, as opposed to a person of full Spanish descent born in the Americas or Philippines (known as creoles). The word "peninsular" makes reference to the Iberian Peninsula in Europe, where Spain is located.
