Calmindon was a massive lighthouse built upon Tol Uinen in the Bay of Rómenna.


Calmindon was built by the future King Aldarion who was then head of the Guild of Venturers in order to warn ships entering the bay.[1] It was destroyed along with Tol Uinen when Númenor was destroyed.[2][3]


Calmindon was Elvish for 'Shining-tower' or 'Light-tower'.[4]
