Llanellen (Welsh: Llanelen) is a village in Monmouthshire, in southeast Wales, three miles (4.8 km) south of Abergavenny.

The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal passes through Llanellen and the River Usk passes close by the village. The Blorenge mountain, 1,841 feet (561 m), towers above the village.

The bridge at Llanellen was built in 1821 by John Upton, who also built the nearby Pant-y-Goitre Bridge.

Llanellen was a civil parish in the Abergavenny Rural District from 1894 until 1935. In 1935, in a move to reduce the number of parishes within Abergavenny Rural District, Llanellen was absorbed into the civil parish of Llanfoist Fawr.
