Beranuy, in Ribagorçan and Aragonese: Beranui[1] is a municipality located in the Ribagorza/Ribagorça comarca, province of Huesca, Aragon, Spain. According to the 2010 census (INE), the municipality has a population of 104 inhabitants.

The municipality was created in 1966 with the union of municipalities of Beranui and Calvera, in a concentration process in the State.

Since 2011 the official name of the municipality is Beranuy (Catalan: [beɾaˈnuj]), which is an adaptation of Catalan name (Beranui)(Catalan: [beɾaˈnuj]) in Spanish.[2][3] In 1966 the municipality received the name of "Veracruz" (Spanish: [beɾaˈkɾuθ]). The paronym Veracuz (Spanish: [beɾaˈkɾuθ]) is a Hispanicization too of the traditional name Beranui, that disregarded the natural linguistic correspondence.[4]

The 9th - 11th century monastery of Santa María de Obarra is located within the municipal term at the foot of the Mountains of Sis.
