The Roman Catholic Diocese of Bragança–Miranda (Latin: Dioecesis Brigantiensis–Mirandensis), in the north-east of Portugal, is a suffragan of the archdiocese of Braga. Its seats are the Cathedral of Braganza and the Cathedral of Miranda do Douro.
The see was erected in 1545 by Pope Paul III in the town of Miranda do Douro bordering on Spain, its territory being taken from the Archdiocese of Braga. Pope Clement XIV in 1770 transferred it to Bragança.
