He is responsible for presiding over the chapter of canons. His essential duties include acting as a representative of the Chapter, presiding over certain liturgical celebrations, convening and leading the chapter meetings and forming part of the institution' s historical and artistic heritage committee

"Among the canons there must be one who presides over the Chapter, and other offices will also be assigned to them in accordance with the statutes, also taking into account the current custom in the region." (Code of Canon Law, no. 507) 

On behalf of all of us who form part of the Cathedral Chapter of Cordoba, I welcome you to our website.

Through this space, the Chapter, aware of the diversity of the people who visit us, is meeting the new demands for social communication. Therefore, through this website we are providing all of the information relating to the liturgical, cultural and tourist activity promoted and carried out by this institution. 

Our commitment to Cordoba is strong and we are actively involved in the different facets of the city' s life. Among the different tasks for which the Cathedral Chapter is responsible is the management of the Mosque-Cathedral Monumental Site. It therefore works tirelessly to preserve and disseminate this universal work of art, a "World Heritage Site" and the main driver of the economic development of Cordoba. 

For these reasons, we have created this redesigned website, conceived as a window open to the world which allows users to reach into the very heart of Cordoba and the soul of its diocese. Our electronic site is the perfect letter of introduction allowing you to find out about this unrivalled sacred space and discover its historic and artistic evolution. Moreover, it is an essential and very useful tool for anyone preparing their visit as it provides all the tourist information on the Monumental Site and the cultural activities taking place there. The beautiful dual role of this building, which is a church and a monument, is also reflected on this website where you can find content relating to religious celebrations and to the chapter body itself.

As Chairman of the Chapter, I invite you to discover our institution and its main emblem, the Mosque-Cathedral Monumental Site of Cordoba, a living and exceptional witness to history.

Monsignor Demetrio Fernández González

Bishop of Cordoba

The Cathedral is the "alma mater" of the diocese, its mother church and the core of its religious life. It is also the episcopal seat since it is where the chair of the Bishop is to be found
