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.
