Cerdanya (Catalan pronunciation: [səɾˈðaɲə]; Spanish: Baja Cerdaña, pronounced [ˈbaxa θeɾˈðaɲa]; French: Basse-Cerdagne, pronounced [bɑs sɛʁdaɲ, bas-]) is a comarca in northern Catalonia, in the Pyrenees, on the border of Catalonia with France and Andorra. Within Catalonia, Cerdanya is divided between Catalan provinces of Girona and Lleida. Cerdanya's neighbouring comarques are Alt Urgell, Berguedà, and Ripollès.

Cerdanya is in the "vegueria" of Alt Pirineu, according to "Vegueries of Catalonia law".

The area is sometimes called Baixa Cerdanya ([ˈbaʃ səɾˈðaɲə]; literally "Lower Cerdanya") to distinguish it from Alta Cerdanya ("Upper Cerdanya") which was ceded to France by the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, dividing the wider Cerdanya.

"Subcomarques" include la Batllia or petita Cerdanya, and el Baridà.

Llívia is a Catalan exclave in Cerdanya, completely surrounded by French territory.
