On July 22, 1504, he was elected Bishop of Cesena.[1] He subsequently occupied that see until his death.[1]

Pope Julius II made him a cardinal priest in the consistory of December 1, 1505.[1] He received the red hat and the titular church of Santa Sabina on December 17, 1505.[1] He was the apostolic administrator of the see of Pamplona from September 17, 1507 until his death.[1]
