Peninsulares were the Spaniards who were actually born in Spain, not in the New World. They were not typically of mixed blood and were generally part of the higher classes, since in the sociedad de castas, Europeans were at the top of the hierarchy, with people of mixed origins (such as mestizos and mulattos) in the middle and black slaves and Indians on the bottom.
