Terres de l'Ebre (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈtɛrəz ðə ˈleβɾə], literally in English 'The Ebre Lands') is one of the seven territories defined by the Regional Plan of Catalonia. It is located in the south-west of Catalonia, in the southern part of river Ebre, and will be formed by four comarques: Baix Ebre, Montsià, Terra Alta and Ribera d'Ebre.[1]

The northern coastal limit of the territory is marked by the Coll de Balaguer, a natural limit with the Camp de Tarragona.

It is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 2013[2] being the second territory in Catalonia to be awarded with this recognition, the first one being the Montseny Massif[3].
