Oromet was a hill near Andúnië and the western shores of Númenor. It was here that the King of Númenor, Tar-Minastir (whose name meant "Tower Watcher"), built a high tower where he could spend many days gazing westward.[1] Well over a thousand years later Tar-Palantir often visited the tower upon Oromet in the vain hope of seeing Tol Eressëa or at least some ship coming from the west.[2]
