Alta Ribagorça (Western Catalan: [ˈalta riβaˈɣoɾsa]) is a comarca in the Alt Pirineu region, in Catalonia, Spain. Its capital is El Pont de Suert. The highest peak is the Comaloformo (3030 metres above sea level) in the massif of Bessiberri. Northeast of the region is the western part of the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park. It is connected with the Aran Valley through the Vielha tunnel.

The Catalan Romanesque Churches of the Vall de Boí are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.[1] In the North-East of the area there is the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, which attracts an important number of visitors.
