Manuel Arce y Ochotorena (18 August 1879 - 16 September 1948) was a Spanish Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church who served as Archbishop of Tarragona from 1944 until his death, and was elevated to the cardinalate in 1946 by Pope Pius XII.


Born in Ororbia, Navarre, Manuel Arce y Ochotorena attended the seminaries in Pamplona and Zaragoza before going to Rome to study at the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Angelicum. He was ordained to the priesthood on 17 July 1904 and then taught at Pamplona's seminary. Also serving as vicar capitular and vicar general of Pamplona, Ochotorena was made an Apostolic Protonotary on 3 December 1926.

On 5 February 1929 he was appointed Bishop of Zamora by Pope Pius XI. He received his episcopal consecration on the following June 16 from Archbishop Federico Tedeschini, with Bishops Tomás Muñiz Pablos and Mateo Múgica y Urrestarazu serving as co-consecrators, in the Cathedral of Pamplona.

Ochotorena was later made Bishop of Oviedo on 22 January 1938 and Archbishop of Tarragona on 29 March 1944. Pope Pius XII created him Cardinal-Priest of Ss. Vitale, Valeria, Gervasio e Protasio in the consistory of 18 February 1946.

The Cardinal died in Tarragona, at age 69. He is buried in the metropolitan cathedral of that same city.
