Concepción Montaner (born 14 January 1981 L'Eliana, Valencia) is a Spanish long jumper.

She took the gold medal the World Junior Championships in 2000. At the 2006 World Indoor Championships she came close to her first major international senior medal, when she finished fourth with 6.76 metres - the same result as the bronze medalist Naide Gomes. Gomes beat Montaner on countback, due to a longer next best jump. In 2007 Montaner won the silver medal at the European Indoor Championships, behind Gomes.

Her personal best jump is 6.92 metres, achieved in July 2005 in Madrid.

She is also a national indoor champion over 60 metres.
