Last Gate

The Seventh of the Seven Gates of Gondolin

The last of Gondolin's gates was last not only in the order they were encountered by one entering the city, but also the last to be built. The Last Gate stood below the Golden Gate, and was the final entrance to Turgon's Hidden City. After the narrow escape of the Gondolindrim from the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, another, even stronger gate was made from steel and built across the entrance to the Orfalch Echor.
