Road of Pomps

Map of Gondolin showing the Road (notice that it connects with the Lesser Market despite this is not properly indicated in the text)

The Road of Pomps was a street of Gondolin, according to the early version of the legendarium in The Book of the Lost Tales.

It went southwards from the Square of the Palace, and one the buildings along it was Gar Ainion. During the Fall of Gondolin, Tuor doubted if leading the survivors directly to his house taking the Way of Running Waters, when they were attacked and forced to take the Road. There Glorfindel and many of the Golden Flower fought manfully protecting the rear.[1]
