Monteforte Cilento is a town and comune of the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-west Italy.

Monteforte was originally a Roman castrum, which expanded in the High Middle Ages after immigration due to the Saracen incursions.

It was one of the centers of the Moti del Cilento in 1828.
