Bargasa (Ancient Greek: Βάργασα) or Pargasa (Πάργασα) was a city of ancient Caria. It was a polis (city-state) and a member of the Delian League. There are also coins of Bargasa with the epigraph Βαργασηνῶν. It is mentioned by Strabo, who, after speaking of Cnidus, says, "then Ceramus and Bargasa, small places above the sea."
