Vinyamar (Q, pron. [ˈviɲamar]) was a settlement built by Turgon in Nevrast, on the slopes of Mount Taras, at the beginning of the First Age. It was the first recorded Ñoldor stone construction as they arrived in Middle-earth. The name is Quenya for "New Home". Vinyamar's population was primarily Ñoldorin, with a large influx of Sindarin elves.
Vinyamar was abandoned and fell into decay, but when Tuor was guided there by Ulmo he still found remnants of the great city.
