Montereale Valcellina (Montreâl in friulan) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Pordenone in the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located about 110 kilometres (68 mi) northwest of Trieste and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Pordenone.

Montereale Valcellina borders the following municipalities: Andreis, Aviano, Barcis, Maniago, San Quirino.

Montereale was the birthplace (1532) of the miller and philosopher Menocchio (also known as Domenico Scandella) who was in 1581 mayor of the village and the surrounding hamlets, and who was burned at the stake in 1599, at the age of 67, on orders of Pope Clement VIII - due to his well-articulated theological and cosmological views which were in complete variance with those of the Catholic Church.
