'The fencing or defensive heights', also known as the Mountains of Aman and the Mountains of Defense, raised by the Valar after the destruction of their dwelling on Almaren; ranging in a crescent from north to south, close to the eastern shores of Aman. Said to be 'the highest upon Earth'.
The Calacirya was a gap in the Pelóri made for the Noldor so that they might see the stars.
The Pelóri effectively fenced in the bliss of the Valar and fenced out the rest of Middle-earth from their thoughts.
