The Taurus Mountains is a mountainous region east of Mare Serenitatis (Sea of Serenity), extending for about 200 km. The highest peaks reach 3 km in height.
The region has no clear boundaries and lies between Sinus Amoris (the Bay of Love) and Lacus Somniorum (Lake of Dreams).
The conspicuous Crater Römer lies within the mountains. West of Römer, and running towards the south for 110 km, are the linear rilles Rimae Römer.
North of Römer there is the rille system Rimae Römer G. Both systems of rilles are clearly visible under low illumination and are observable in small telescopes.
