Mateus Vicente de Oliveira (1706–1786) was a Portuguese architect. He studied under the architects Joao Frederico Ludovice and Jean Baptiste Robillon during the construction of the royal palace at Mafra - Portugal's attempt to rival the Spanish king's palace at Escorial.

Oliveira worked chiefly in the late Baroque and rococo styles of architecture. While he is best remembered for his design of the Palace of Queluz on which he worked from 1742 - 1758. he also worked on many other projects. In 1779 he began work on the Basilica da Estrela in Lisbon, this church was incomplete at the time of de Oliveira's death and work continued under the direction of Reinaldo Manuel, while Manuel was responsible for much of the classical detail of the church's exterior, the blueprint of the church is credited to de Oliveira.
