Regions of Númenor

The eastern promontory of Númenor, a roughly rectangular block of land that stretched for some two hundred miles from west to east and was surrounded by sea on all but its western side. A range of hills ran along its northern coast, and especially in its inland parts it held some of the most important farmlands of Númenor.
