Pere Compte (also spelled Pere Comte; died 1506) was a Spanish Catalan architect from Girona. He was one of the main Gothic architects of the Aragonese court of the period, and in particular in Valencia, where he directed the construction of numerous palaces.

Compte's works include the Convent of St. Dominic (1454–1457), together with Francesc Baldomar, the restoration of the Torres de Quart (1468), a chapel in the church of Sant Nicolau (1476), the crossing of the Cathedral of Orihuela and the Llotja de la Seda (1483–1498). He also directed the works of the Cathedral of Valencia from 1479.
