Terrain feature found anywhere on land tiles.

StrategyEdit

Mountain tiles are impassable to almost all units except air units. They provide nothing to cities other than the opportunity to build Machu Picchu, Neuschwanstein, and Observatories. Note that a city must be right next to a mountain to build an Observatory, but both wonders can be built in a city within 2 tiles of a mountain.

Mountains are usually great obstacles to movement, and can provide natural defensive barriers. Just be wary of Carthaginian players, who can negate their defensive properties after earning a Great General!

It may be advantageous to settle a city right next to a mountain so that you can build the above-mentioned wonders and building there. However, you shouldn't go out of your way to do so unless you're playing as the Inca - they can put mountains and adjacent hill tiles to really good use!
