Wall of Minas Tirith

Type: Fortresses, Towers, Defenses

Region: Gondor

Location: The outer, impenetrable wall surrounding the city of Minas Tirith.

Description:

For the main wall of the City was of great height and marvellous thickness, built ere the power and craft of Númenor waned in exile; and its outward face was like to the Tower of Orthanc, hard and dark and smooth, unconquerable by steel or fire, unbreakable except by some convulsion that would rend the very earth on which it stood.

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 4, The Siege of Gondor

It was against the Gate that [the Witch-king] would throw his heaviest weight. Very strong it might be... yet it was the key, the weakest point in all that high and impenetrable wall.

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 4, The Siege of Gondor
