El Bruc (Catalan pronunciation: [əl ˈβɾuk]; Spanish: Bruch) is a municipality in the comarca of the Anoia in Catalonia, Spain. It is situated on the side of Montserrat, of which the north-western third is within the municipality. A local road connects the village with the main N-II road from Barcelona to Lleida, and to Monistrol de Montserrat via the monastery.

It was the site of the Battles of the Bruch between France and Spain in 1808.
