Obispo Pérez Muñoz (religious figure)

Obispo Pérez Muñoz (religious figure) Originally from Santander, Bishop Perez Muñoz was a doctor in theology and canon law and was appointed Bishop of Cordoba in August 1920, a position he held until his death in December 1945.

He instigated plans for building housing for the poor in the Avenida de las Ollerías, in the Fuensanta district and in the Puerta de Plasencia. He also founded San Rafael School, which was popularly known as "the Bishop's school", and bought land in the hills above Cordoba to build the San Antonio House of Retreat.
