English: Paarl Mountain located north east of the city of Cape Town South Africa, received its name in 1657 when the Dutch settlers first entered the Berg River Valley and beheld the bare domes of granite, wet with dew, glistening in the morning sun. The town Paarl was named after this prominent geological feature. The crowning peaks at 600-700 metres elevation above sea-level are centrally situated in a granite intrusion, 60 km2 in area, measuring 13 km north to south and 6.5 km in maximum width, west to east.
