Lombanór (Quenya: [Lomba-nór]; "Secret-land"), also known as Old Lombanór, is a possible continent on Arda. Very little is known about this land, and is often considered as merely a myth. Its location, environment, politics, religion and even its current existence are that of conjecture. Translations from the tapestries and texts from Rivendell have yielded only the barest of sketches of a beautiful, but very strange, land. In no representation of Lombanór are there any representations of life. It appears always as an endless city, built upon itself over and over again, until nothing from nature remains. The highest towers are reserved for interring the dead, a tradition continued on by some in Rivendell.
