Idril s secret way by wollemisiss-d7yek4y

Idril looking over the walls of the Gondolin contemplating the Secret Way, by Szilvia Szarvas

Idril's Secret Way was an escape tunnel made by Idril Celebrindal under the hidden city of Gondolin.


The Secret Way ran underneath the city possibly beginning from the house of Tuor and Idril beyond its walls and proceeded northward of the Amon Gwareth. Through the Secret Way, the last survivors of the doomed city escaped its destruction.[1][2]
