The Province of Benevento (Italian: Provincia di Benevento) is a province in the Campania region of Italy. Its capital is the city of Benevento.


The province has an area of 2,071 km², and a total population of 316,464 (2012). There are 78 San Giorgio del Sannio.

The territory of the province of Benevento closely approximates that of the Principality of Benevento in the mid and late eleventh century. It borders Molise on the North, Apulia on the East, the province of Avellino and that of Napoli on the South, and the province of Caserta on the West.

The lowest point is in the comune of Limatola (44 meters above sea level), while the highest point is Monte Mutria (1822 meters), one of the mountains of the Matese range, which separates the province of Benevento from Molise.
