A group of mountains, 30 mi long, consisting mainly of seven small massifs which trend north-south, forming a partial barrier to the flow of inland ice. The mountains stand in isolation about 90 mi SW of the head of Lutzow-Holm Bay. Discovered and photographed from aircraft by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition, 1960, under Guido Derom, on October 8, 1960, and named with the permission of the King for Dona Fabiola de Mora y Aragon, on the occasion of her wedding with King Baudouin of Belgium. In November-December 1960, the mountains were visited by a party of the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition which made geomorphological and geological surveys.
