Montegalda is a town in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. It is east of SP20.

It borders Montegaldella, and the Bacchiglione river flows between the two municipalities.

Montegalda is most famous because of its castle, Castello Grimani-Sorlini, perched on top of a hill near the town centre and the only castle within a radius of 16 kilometres (10 mi); it is privately owned.
