Agustín Parrado y García (October 5, 1872—October 8, 1946) was a Spanish Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church who served as Archbishop of Granada from 1934 until his death, and was elevated to the cardinalate in 1946 by Pope Pius XII.


Agustín Parrado y García was born in Fuensaldaña, and studied at the seminary in Valladolid before being ordained to the priesthood on September 21, 1895. He then taught at the Valladolid seminary and at the Pontifical University of Valladolid. After becoming Vice-Rector of the seminary of Valladolid, Parrado was made canon penitentiary of the cathedral chapter of Astorga, director of its diocesan newspaper, and an official of the diocesan curia.

He was later made a diocesan official of Salamanca, dean of the Theological Faculty at the Pontifical University of Salamanca, and Domestic Prelate of His Holiness on June 14, 1922.

On May 20, 1925, Parrado was appointed Bishop of Palencia by Pope Benedict XV. He received his episcopal consecration on March 25, 1908 from Archbishop Julián de Diego y García Alcolea, with Bishops Manuel de Castro y Alosnso and Manuel Vidal y Boullon serving as co-consecrators, in the Cathedral of Salamanca.

Parrado was later named Archbishop of Granada, ending a nearly four-year long vacancy, on March 7, 1934, and an Assistant at the Pontifical Throne on October 17, 1945. Pope Pius XII created him Cardinal Priest of Sant'Agostino in the consistory of February 22, 1946.

The Cardinal died in Granada, at age 74. He is buried in the metropolitan cathedral of Granada.
