French Cerdagne is the northern half of Cerdanyamarker, which came under French control as a result of the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, while the southern half remained in Spainmarker (as part of Cataloniamarker). Catalonians often refer to French Cerdagne as "High Cerdanya" ( ), although this name is not recognized in France. It is the only French territory in the Iberian Peninsulamarker.

French Cerdagne has no special status inside France, simply forming an area within the département of Pyrénées-Orientales, unlike the Spanish part of Cerdanya, which is officially a Catalan comarca called simply Cerdanyamarker.
