Montegaldella is a city in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. SP16 crosses it.

In Montegaldella you can find the Villa Conti-Lampertico "La Deliziosa", built in the early 17th century, example of the type of villa that has been studied and copied all over the world; its garden features statues by Orazio Marinali.

The town is also home to the over 500 years-old Catholic church of San Michele Arcangelo, that has been restored in the early 2000s; the church's bells are still rung by hand by a team of citizens, who have also participated in bellringing contests.
