Arnes (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈarnəs], locally: [ˈaɾnes]) is a municipality in the comarca of la Terra Alta in Catalonia, Spain.

The most noteworthy building of this town is the Town Hall, a good example of Catalan Renaissance art. It was built in 1584 by Joan Vilabona of Queretes i nearby Matarranya.[1]

There is a raised area with benches close to the church shaded by mulberry trees with spectacular views over the Roques de Benet, among other mountains of the Ports de Tortosa-Beseit. Locals people like to sit there in the afternoon enjoying the magnificent landscape.
