Penyagalera (Catalan pronunciation: [ˌpɛɲəɣəˈɫɛɾə], locally: [ˌpeɲaɣaˈleɾa]) is a rocky mountain in the northern side of the Ports de Tortosa-Beseit, Aragon, Spain. Punta de Penyagalera, the highest summit, has an altitude of 1,034.4 metres above sea level.[1]

Penyagalera, the name of the mountain (penya "rock" and galera "galley" in Catalan) derives from the fact that it looks like a ship keel upwards from certain angles.
