Tossal dels Tres Reis (Valencian pronunciation: [toˈsaɫ deɫs ˈtɾez ˈrejs]) or Tossal del Rei is a mountain of the Ports de Tortosa-Beseit massif, Spain. It has an elevation of 1,350 metres above sea level.[1] Its name means 'Peak of the Three Kings' (or 'Peak of the King') and it is located where the borders of the ancient Kingdoms of Valencia, Catalonia and Aragon meet.

On the summit there is a cairn marking the place said to have been the meeting point of the ancient three kings of the Crown of Aragon who, according to tradition, climbed the mountain to agree to settle the limit.
