The Roman Catholic Diocese of Canarias (Latin: Canarien(sis)) is a diocese located in the Canary Islands in the Ecclesiastical province of Seville in Spain.[1][2]

The dioceses includes the islands of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote (Oriental Province). However, it does not include to the whole archipelago, since the Diocese of Tenerife or Nivariense, includes the Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. For this reason, the use of the name of the archipelago is currently a very controversial topic in the Canary Islands.[3][4] It has recently emerged between the society of Lanzarote the desire to recover the diocesan headquarters of San Marcial del Rubicón.[5][6]
