The Reach and the location of the Hightower

The Hightower is a castle and lighthouse in the port of Oldtown atop Battle Island. It is the seat of House Hightower, one of the most powerful families of the Reach.[1]

According to a semi-canon source, the Hightower stands in the center of Oldtown, the city having grown around it. It is a massive stepped tower with a beacon on top to guide ships into port. It is one of the tallest structures in the Seven Kingdoms.[2] It is speculated by fans that it is one of the nine Wonders Made by Man written about by Lomas Longstrider.[3]
