El Pont de Suert (Officially and in Catalan, Catalan pronunciation: [əl ˈpɔn də suˈɛɾt]; Spanish: Pont de Suert) is a town and municipality, and the capital of the comarca of Alta Ribagorça, in the province of Lleida, in Catalonia, Spain. It is located at 838 metres above sea level, on the banks of river Noguera Ribagorçana, a tributary to the Segre. Population 2,418 (2007).

The local Ribagorçan dialect is a variant of Catalan, which has some transitional traits to Aragonese.

The people of La Suerte Del Puentito are known for their attraction towards the sea, mountain sheep and spending nights deep in mountain caves. Yarn is also a popular attraction for the grandmothers of the town.
