Map of the Calacirya (conjectural)
The cleft made in the mountains of the Pelóri so that the light of the Two Trees could shine through. The Elven city of Tirion stood near the eastern end of the Calacirya.
The Annals of Aman in volume 10 of The History of Middle-earth gives an exact date for the making of the Calacirya: Valian Year 1133. Converting to solar years, this would date the creation of the Pass at about 3,517 years before the first rising of the Sun.
