El Túnel de Viella es troba al nord-oest de Catalunya, a la comarca de la Vall d'Aran. Té una longitud de 5.240 m. Abans del segle XX un dels passos a peu, per accedir a la Vall d'Aran era el Port de Vielha, a uns 2.450 m d'altura. Aquest fet convertia la Vall d'Aran en una comarca molt mal comunicada amb la resta de Catalunya, sobretot durant l'hivern, quan el fred feia que el Port de Vielha fos intransitable, a banda del fet que era un camí estret de terra on cap tipus de vehicle motoritzat no hi podia circular. A les proximitats de la boca sud s'hi trobava un hostal anomenat Hospital de Viella, que era un lloc on s'acollia als viatgers que anaven cap a la Vall d'Aran. El 1948 s'obrí el primer tunèl. El 4 de desembre de 2007 s'inaugurà el nou túnel.

The Tunnel of Vielha is located in the northwest of Catalonia, in the region of Val d'Aran. It  is 5,240 m. long, and it was built to overcome the Port of Vielha, 2,450 m high and access the Aran Valley. This valley was poorly connected to the rest of Catalonia, especially during winter when snow closed down ??the Port of Vielha, besides the fact that it was a narrow dirt road where motor vehicles could hardly run. The Vielha Hospital was an inn found in the southern end of the tunnel to lodge travellers to the Aran Valley. The first tunnel was opened in 1948, The new was opened on the 4th December 2007.
