Gradisca d'Isonzo (Friulian: "Gardiscje", Slovenian: "Gradišče ob Soči") is a town of 6,600 inhabitants in the province of Gorizia, in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, north-eastern Italy. It is located on the Isonzo River.

Although it is said to have been founded by the Venetians in the 15th century, the town's name is a Slavic toponym: in archaic Slovene, "Gradišče" was a term indicating a fortified site or a ruin and is a widespread toponym in Slovenian ethnic territory.

The town is an important cultural center for the Friulian people in the Venezia Giulia region.
