Andrea Palma (b. Trapani, 1644 or 1664 d. 1730) was an 18th century Sicilian architect, working in the Baroque style. He is credited with being one of the most notable architects of the Sicilian Baroque movement.

His works include the cathedral at Syracuse, the "Chiesa di Santa Maria di Montevergini", and the Chiesa di San Gioacchino, whose severe baroque facade he designed in the early 18th century.
