GeographyEdit

Montmeneu is an isolated hill of the Catalan Central Depression.[1] Since it is surrounded by flat landscape the mountain is visible over long distances.

There is a triangulation station at the top marked "247126001". Although it is not the highest hill in the region —the Puntal dels Escambrons is 5 m higher— the top offers extensive views of the surrounding landscape.[2]

This mountain is one of the Emblematic summits of Catalonia.[3]
