The Mancomunidad de Municipios Marquesado del Zenete or Mancomunidad del Marquesado del Zenete ("Mancomunidad of municipalities of the Marquisate of Cenete") is a voluntary grouping (mancomunidad) of municipalities, located in the province of Granada, autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. They take their name from the Marquisate of Cenete, the former seigneury (Spanish: señorio) in this area, which in turn takes its name (historically spelled either Zenete or Cenete) from the Arabic sened, meaning the slope that constitutes one side of a mountain range. That refers to the north slope of the Sierra Nevada, where the municipalities are located.[1]

The objective of the mancomunidad is to promote, stimulate, and rationalize the social and economic development of the municipalities of which it is constituted. It also constitutes a subcomarca within the Comarca of Guadix.

The mancomunidad consists of the following municipalities:

The Marquisate of Cenete extends north from the ridge line of the Sierra Nevada. In the northeast it reaches to the ridge line of the Sierra de Baza; most of the mancomunidad is the wide valley of the Zalabí; immediately to its north is the municipality of Valle de Zalabí.

Zenete que indistintamente se verá escrito con 'z' o con 'c', es palabra derivadadel áreabe sened, que significa 'falda, subida, cuesta del monte', por lo que en este caso haría refenecia al declive de Sierra Nevada hacia el norte.
