Falasquil

In early stage of the legendarium, Falasquil was a name given by the Noldoli to Tuor's dwelling place near Mithrim. The floor of the cove was white sand; the walls were embellished by Tuor with animals, birds, trees and flowers. His favourite carving was a swan, which eventually became the emblem of his house. Tuor dwelt there for a while, until Ulmo appointed him with the mission to reach Gondolin.[1]
