Spišské Podhradie (German: Kirchdrauf; Hungarian: Szepesváralja) is a town in Spiš in the Prešov Region of Slovakia. Its population is 3,826.
Spišské Podhradie is situated at the foot of the hill of Spiš Castle. It had a Zipser German settlement, with its own church and priest, in 1174. Just above, and adjacent to, the town is the ecclesiastical settlement of Spišská Kapitula (hence an old German name Kirchdorf, meaning "church town").
