The Catholic Church does not own the cathedral in Córdoba, Spain, according to a city government report.

The Great Mosque of Córdoba was built in 784 on the site of a seventh-century Catholic church. Since 1236, the former mosque has been used as a Catholic cathedral. In recent years, the local bishop has refused Muslim requests to worship in the cathedral.

“Religious consecration is not the way to acquire property,” according to the government report, as quoted by The Guardian. Instead, the cathedral is owned by “every citizen of the world from whatever epoch and regardless of people, nation, culture or race.
