LocationAvallónë

The Tower of Avallónë was raised to overlook the haven of Avallónë on the island of Tol Eressëa. There the Master Palantír was kept. It is said that when a mariner sailed to Aman he saw the tower first of all on the horizon.[1]

The Elostirion-stone, one of the palantíri erected in the tallest of the towers of Emyn Beraid, could show the tower when used by King Elendil. This would comfort him when he longed for the West.[2]
