Saint Buriana was a 6th century Cornish saint from St Buryan, near Penzance, in Cornwall.

Buriana ministered from a chapel on the site of the parish church at St Buryan. She is said to have been the daughter of an Irish king and travelled to Cornwall from Ireland as a missionary to convert the Cornish to Christianity. One legend tells how she cured the paralysed son of King Geraint of Dumnonia. Baring-Gould identifies her with the Irish Saint Bruinsech.

Buriana's feast day is on 1 May.
