La Pobla de Benifassà (Valencian pronunciation: [la ˈpɔβla ðe βenifaˈsa]) is a municipality in the comarca of Baix Maestrat in the Valencian Community, Spain.

It is located in the historical comarca of Tinença de Benifassà. Most villages in the area have only residual population owing to massive emigration in the late 20th century.

The Ulldecona Dam is located within the La Pobla de Benifassà municipal limits.[1]
