The Matarranya (Spanish: Río Matarraña, Catalan: Riu Matarranya) is a river in the provinces of Teruel and Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain. It begins its course at 1,200 m nordeast of the Tossal d'Encanader, Ports de Beseit.[1] limestone massif near La Pobla de Benifassà.

The Matarranya flows roughly from south to north into the Ebro (Ebre), 4 km east of Faió (Fayón). This river gives its name to the Matarranya Catalan language-speaking comarca of Aragon.[2]
