Porch in Rivendell

Type: Buildings, Halls, Houses

Region: Arnor/Eriador/Lindon

Location: Rivendell

Description: The porch of the Last Homely House in which was held the Council of Elrond was capable of seating at least fourteen people.

“Sam led him along several passages and down many steps and out into a high garden above the steep bank of the river. He found his friends sitting in a porch on the side of the house looking east. Shadows had fallen in the valley below, but there was still a light on the faces of the mountains far above. The air was warm. The sound of running and falling water was loud, and the evening was filled with a faint scent of trees and flowers, as if summer still lingered in Elrond's gardens.”

Many Meetings, pg. 296, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Gandalf led them to the porch where Frodo had found his friends the evening before. The light of the clear autumn morning was now glowing in the valley. The noise of bubbling waters came up from the foaming river-bed. Birds were singing, and a wholesome peace lay on the land.”

The Council of Elrond, pg. 313-314, The Fellowship of the Ring
