Dorsum Azara is a wrinkle ridge at 26°42′N 19°12′E / 26.7°N 19.2°E / 26.7; 19.2 in Mare Serenitatis on the Moon.[1] It is 105 km long and was named after Spanish naturalist Félix Manuel de Azara in 1976.

More than 50 km west is Banting crater and to the southeast are Sarabhai and Bessel's satellite crater Bessel H located about 10-15 km east of the ridges.
