Šentilj v Slovenskih Goricah (pronounced [ʃɛnˈtiːl ʍ slɔˈʋeːnskiɣ ɡɔˈɾiːtsax] or [ʃənˈtiːl ʍ slɔˈʋeːnskiɣ ɡɔˈɾiːtsax]; Slovene: Šentilj v Slovenskih goricah) is a town and the administrative centre of the Municipality of Šentilj in northeastern Slovenia.
The parish church, from which the settlement also gets its name, is dedicated to Saint Giles. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1329. In 1532 it was looted by Ottoman Turks. It became an independent parish in 1784 and the current building was built in 1806 in a cruciform plan with a tall belfry.
