This is a list of the 244 Grade II* listed buildings in Monmouthshire, Wales.[1]

In the United Kingdom, the term "listed building" refers to a building or other structure officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. These buildings are in three grades: Grade II* consists of particularly important buildings of more than special interest. Listing was begun by a provision in the Town and Country Planning Act 1947. Once listed, strict limitations are imposed on the modifications allowed to a building's structure or fittings. In Wales,[2] the authority for listing under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990[3] rests with Cadw.

The Grade II* listed buildings in Monmouthshire include seventy-two houses, forty-two churches, thirty-five farmhouses, twenty-one commercial premises, eight bridges, seven barns, six garden structures, four sets of walls, railings or gates, three gatehouses, two chapels, two community centres, two dovecotes, an almshouse, an aqueduct, a castle, a courthouse, a cross, a dairy, a folly, a masonic lodge, a mill, a prison, a former slaughterhouse, a statue and a theatre.[a]

  2. ^ The "HB Number" is a unique number assigned to each listed building by Cadw.
  1. ^ There is not an exact match between the number of Grade II* listed buildings in Monmouthshire, (244), and the number of entries for these, (217). There are a number of reasons for this, including that some entries cover more than one listing, e.g. Castle Terrace, Chepstow covers thirteen listings, and that some single buildings or structures have more than one listing, e.g. New Bridge, Newbridge-on-Usk which, quite commonly for bridges, has listings for both ends.
