White Towers

Revision as of 19:05, 15 November 2010 by Pinkkeith (Talk | contribs)

The White Towers were built by Gil-galad as a gift to Elendil, perhaps after the founding of Arnor (S.A. 3320).

The tallest of the three was called Elostirion and a palantír was kept there.

They were sometimes the destination of pilgrimage by Wandering Companies of Elves who would gaze to Valinor through the palantír. Such a band was led by Gildor Inglorion.
