Cerdanya is a comarca in northern Catalonia, Spain, in the Pyrenees, on the border of Catalonia with France and Andorra. Within Catalonia. Cerdanya's neighbouring comarques are Alt Urgell, Berguedà, and Ripollès.

The area is sometimes called Baixa Cerdanya (literally "Lower Cerdanya") to distinguish it from Alta Cerdanya ("High Cerdanya") which was ceded to France by the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659.

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