Chapter rooms were the relations and decision-making settings of the Cathedral chapters, institutions that since the Middle Ages co-governed the dioceses and its cathedrals along with the bishop, and that generally achieved great economic and social power. These spaces and its furniture responded to the meetings held there periodically and to a highly hierarchical structure, where ceremonial set the tone. Unfortunately, in the case of Bogota, many of these collegiate spaces (old city council, conventual chapter rooms) disappeared or were drastically modified. It could be said that the Bogota Cathedral chapter room is the only surviving space of the different colonial powers. Even if the chapter rooms occupy the same space for 300 years, the building interventions and its subsequent transfer in the 19th century, led to a profound alteration of the space configuration from its 18th century form.
