Beranuy (Catalan: [beɾaˈnuj]) or Beranui (Catalan: [beɾaˈnuj]) is a municipality located in the Ribagorza comarca, province of Huesca, Aragon, Spain. According to the 2010 census (INE), the municipality has a population of 104 inhabitants.

The municipality was created in 1966 with the union of municipalities of Beranui and Calvera, in a concentration process in the State.

Since 2011 the official name of the municipality is Beranuy (Catalan: [beɾaˈnuj]), which is an adaptation of Catalan name (Beranui)(Catalan: [beɾaˈnuj]) in Spanish.[1][2] In 1966 the municipality received the name of "Veracruz" (Spanish: [beɾaˈkɾuθ]). The paronym Veracuz (Spanish: [beɾaˈkɾuθ]) is a Castilianization too of the traditional name Beranui, that disregarded the natural linguistic correspondence.[3]

The 9th - 11th century Santa María de Obarra monastery is located within the municipal term, at the foot of the Sierra de Sis range.


Besides the main Beranui town there are the following villages within its municipal term:
