The Seven Gates of Gondolin were a series of gates in the Orfalch Echor protecting the entrance to Gondolin.[1]

They were all built by the skilled craftsman of the city and each was unique and had its own guard.


No doubt completed when Gondolin was completed, the seven gates served as a barrier preventing any foe from entering through the Hidden Way. When Maeglin came to live in Gondolin and became a skilled craftsman, he constructed the seventh and last of the gates, the Gate of Steel. In FA 495 Tuor and Voronwë passed through each of these gates.[2]
