Pope John XXI (Template:Lang-la, Template:Lang-pt, Template:Lang-it; c. 1215 – 20 May 1277), born Pedro Julião or Peter Juliani (Template:Lang-la), was the head of the Catholic Church from 13 September 1276 to his death in 1277. A Portuguese often identified with Pedro Hispano (Template:Lang-la; Template:Lang-en), he was the only Portuguese pope, although Damasus I can also be considered Portuguese, as he was born in territory that is nowadays in Portugal.

He was also the only pope to have been a physician.
