Yongcheng (Chinese: 永城; pinyin: Yǒngchéng) is a county-level city in Shangqiu, Henan, in the People's Republic of China.

It is the former site of Shiyuan (柿园), the capital of Han-era Liang. It includes the excavated mausoleum of the fabulously wealthy Liu Wu, prince of Liang, now a museum (柿园汉墓) famed for its murals.
