Then Tuor looked down upon the fair vale of Tumladen, set as a green jewel amid the encircling hills; and he saw far off upon the rocky height of Amon Gwareth Gondolin the great..., whose fame and glory is mightiest in song of all dwellings of the Elves in the Hither Lands.

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 23, Of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin

Gondolin upon Amon Gwareth became fair indeed and fit to compare even with Elven Tirion beyond the sea.

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 15, Of the Noldor in Beleriand

Tuor fought with Maeglin on the walls, and cast him far out, and his body as it fell smote the rocky slopes of Amon Gwareth thrice ere it pitched into the flames below.
