Terra Alta (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈtɛrə ˈaltə]) is a sparsely populated inland comarca (county) in Catalonia, Spain. Its capital is Gandesa. It is also known as Castellania, a name dating back to its medieval status as a fiefdom held by the Order of Knights of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem under the Crown of Aragon.
