The city that J.R.R. Tolkien described as seemingly "carven by giants out of the bones of the the earth," Minas Tirith serves as the last bastion of man against the might and menace of Sauron. Its seven walls of ancient stone rest at the knee of Mount Mindolluin, at the end of the White Mountains. From it's towers, it is possible to look out south, beyond the Anduin river to the Sea, or north, to the fires of Mount Doom.
Here, we take a closer look at the capital of Gondor, and how the stage was set by Director Peter Jackson for the city to play it's central role in the great War of the Ring.
