A multilayer piezoelectric element is provided with a multilayer body, a first external electrode on a side face of the multilayer body, and a second external electrode outside the first external electrode. The multilayer body consists of an alternate stack of a plurality of piezoelectric members and a plurality of internal electrodes. The first external electrode is electrically connected to predetermined internal electrodes. The second external electrode extends in a wave pattern along a stack direction of the multilayer body and is of flat plate shape. The first external electrode and the second external electrode are electrically and physically connected through a plurality of connections.
