Fraga (Spanish: [ˈfɾaɣa]; Catalan: [ˈfɾaɣə], locally: [ˈfɾaɣa]) is the major town of the comarca of Bajo Cinca (Catalan: Baix Cinca) in the province of Huesca, Aragon, Spain. It is located by the river Cinca.

King Alfonso I of Aragon died at its walls in 1134 while trying to conquer it during the Battle of Fraga. It was conquered from the Moors by the Count Ramon Berenguer IV of Barcelona in 1149.

The local dialect, called Fragatí, is a variant of Catalan.
