Mont-Dauphin is a commune in the Hautes-Alpes department in southeastern France.

At the confluence of Durance and Guil rivers, overlooking the impressive canyon of the latter flowing down from Queyras valleys, Mont-Dauphin is one of the many places fortified by Vauban in the second half of the 17th century.

In 2008, the place forte of Mont-Dauphin, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as part of the "Fortifications of Vauban" group.
