Vielha e Mijaran (Occitan pronunciation: [biˈeʎa e miʒaˈɾan]) is a municipality in Val d'Aran, Catalonie, Spain. It wis creatit in 1970 bi the merger o the municipalities o Arròs e Vila, Betlan, Escunhau, Gausac, Vielha an Vilac: some o the umwhile municipalities reteen some privileges as "decentralised municipal entities" (entitats municipals descentralitzades, EMD),[3] as does the veelage o Betren. Mijaran literally means "Middle Aran" in Aranese, as the inhabitit pairt o the municipality is situatit in the valley o the Garonne (Garona). The Noguera Ribagorçana haes its source on the territory o the municipality, on the opposite side o the wattershed. The ajuntament (toun haw) is in Vielha, spelled Viella in Catalan an Spaingie, which is the caipital o Aran an aw.

The municipality is linkit tae Fraunce an tae the rest o Catalonie (via the Vielha tunnel) bi the N-230 road. The C-28 (auld name: C-142) road continues up the valley tae Naut Aran, an on ower the Port de la Bonaigua (2,072 m, 6,798 ft) tae the comarca o Pallars Sobirà. This road, the heicher stretches o which are impassable in winter, wis the anerly route atween the Aran valley an the rest o Spain afore the openin o the Vielha tunnel in 1948.
