Linhir was a port town in the province of Lebennin in southern Gondor.

Linhir was the second largest city in Lebennin. It lay on the confluence of the rivers Gilrain and Serni and was a significant port. A road stretching from Erech all the way down into Harad also passed through the town.[1]

During the War of the Ring, the Men of Lamedon led by Angbor, the Lord of Lamedon, were attacked here by the Corsairs. As the battle raged, Aragorn, along with the Grey Company and the Army of the Dead, arrived. The attackers fled before them, and the Men of Lamedon also ran, all save for Angbor.[citation needed]
