Baja California (Lower California)
Yes, it is. But don't confuse it with California, which is a state on the western board of the United States. See related questions for further detail.
In northwestern Mexico, just south of the US state of California.
Because all territories that include present-day state of California as well as all or parts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and Wyoming, and the Mexican peninsula of Baja Californi…a were known as the Californian Territories (Spanish: Territorios de California ) when they were discovered by Spanish explorers in the 16th and 17th centuries. As it was a large expansion of land, it was divided in two regions: Upper California (the aforementioned US states) and Baja California, which spans the well-known peninsula. After the Mexican-American War (1846-1848) the US occupied and later acquired all territories of Upper California.
Just south of California. You see, "Baja" means "lower" in Spanish.
When it was discovered in 1534 by Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes, the long peninsula was thought to be an island, so it was named after a mythical island inhabited by Amaz…on warriors and described in the Spanish romance novel The Adventures of Esplandian (1510). After further discoveries, the whole area now encompassing the US state of California and the peninsula, were known as the Territory of the Californias , being subdivided into the Alta California (Higher California), and the Baja California (Lower California). After the Mexican-American War (1846-1848) Mexico lost its northern territories, keeping the Baja California territory. Nowadays, it has been further subdivided into two federal states: Baja California (capital Mexicali) and Baja California Sur (capital La Paz). Both acquired statehood in 1952 and 1974, respectively.
The answer is...Mexico
