Fortress-city in Beleriand, mentioned in Tolkien's work The Silmarillion. It was located in the Falas and was part of the realm of Cirdan. Like Eglarest, it became a haven for elves fleeing after the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, until it was successfully besieged and sacked by Morgoth's forces. Surviving elves fled to Balar.
It is a coastal city with a mighty tower.
