Highgarden is the seat of House Tyrell in the Reach. It lies on the Mander and there the Ocean Road meets the Roseroad, making it an important crossroads.[1]

The Castle

Margaery Tyrell describes the castle as having groves and fountains, shady courtyards, and marble colonnades. It is filled with singers, pipers, fiddlers and harpers. The stables have a fine selection of horseflesh, and there are pleasure boats to sail along the Mander.

History

It was once the seat of House Gardener, but when that line was destroyed on the Field of Fire, Harlen Tyrell, the steward of the Gardeners, surrendered it to Aegon I. He received the castle and the rulership of the Reach for that action.[2]
