The Rocca Malatestiana (Malatestian Stronghold) is a fortress in Cesena, Italy. The current structure is the third fortress built in the place, near the ruins of the two previous ones, of late-Roman and medieval age.

The fortress, one of the imposing in Romagna, has a court and two central towers, called the "Male" and the "Female". The Museum of Agriculture, located inside the latter, offers visitors a complete picture of rural life in Romagna over different ages, while the "Male Tower" hosts a permanent exhibition of Malatestian Ceramics.
