Havens of the Falas were Elven cities in Beleriand.

The Falas was the realm of Círdan the Shipwright and his people, Sindarin Elves who were known as the Falathrim.[1] They lived in two great walled havens, Eglarest at the mouth of the River Nenning, and to the north Brithombar at the mouth of the River Brithon.[2]

The Havens were besieged during the First Battle of Beleriand, but during the Dagor-nuin-Giliath the Orcs that besieged the cities turned north to fight the Noldor and were all slain.[3] When Finrod Felagund established himself in Nargothrond his rule extended over all of West Beleriand excepts for the coasts, which continued to be ruled by Círdan, Felagund's ally.[4]

The Havens of the Falas held out during the later Battles of Beleriand until they were finally destroyed in F.A. 473,[5] and Círdan's people fled to the Mouths of Sirion and the Isle of Balar.[6]
