Santa Maria dei Monti (also known as Madonna dei Monti or Santa Maria ai Monti) is a cardinalatial titular church in Rome, Italy. The church is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Situated on the sloping terrain above the ancient forums of Rome, near Via Cavour, at 41 Via della Madonna dei Monti, the church was commissioned by Pope Gregory XIII in 1580 to celebrate the discovery of a miraculous 15th-century image of Our Lady with Sts Lawrence and Stephen, found in the ruins of a nearby convent of the Poor Clares, and which now hangs over the high altar. A copy is taken in procession through the streets on 26 April each year.
The church was designed by Giacomo della Porta with a façade inspired by his prior work of the church of the Gesú. It has two rows of Corinthian pilasters that are connected with volutes. (The façade was renovated in 1991–92) Above the door is a dedicatory inscription and votive niches. The work was continued by Carlo Lombardi and Flaminio Ponzio. Original to this phase are the statues by Giovanni Anguilla of the four major prophets of the Old Testament in the niches of the dome (1599).
