Spanish term or phrase: Diputacion, Cabildo, Ayuntamiento
There are so many translations for these and a lot of them seem to overlap so I'm confused. Anybody care to give me a translation for each so that they make sense here? Thanks!

En cuarto y último lugar, y respecto a las variables que caracterizan el comportamiento del sector público en el ámbito cultural, los datos hacen referencia a los agregados de la Administración Territorial, los cuales incluyen a las Administraciones Generales de las Comunidades Autónomas y las Corporaciones o Entidades (**Diputaciones y Cabildos más Ayuntamientos**), excluyendo la aportación del Estado.

In my experience, "cabildo" is either a religious (cathedral, sodality, ...) body or, more commonly, the government of an island (cabildo insular)
