Created by physical and chemical weathering, the Montserrat Mountains of northeastern Spain were named after their jagged appearance. Montserrat translates to serrated mountain in the Catalan language. These pinkish conglomerate pinnacles, the highest peak is 4,054 ft (1,236 m), form part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range, a system of ranges that parallels Catalonia's Mediterranean coast.
