The Port of Ibben is the main city on Ib and is the largest city of Ibben. It is located on the southern coast of Ib.[1]

The city is grey and gloomy and has ruled over Ib and the lesser isles since the Dawn Age. It is a city of cobbled alleys, steep hills, and teeming docks and shipyards, lit by whale-oil lamps suspended on iron chains. The main structure in the city are the ruins of the God-King's castle. Beyond the Port of Ibben foreigners are only allowed with an Ibbenese host.[2]


The ironborn raiders of the Iron Islands have sailed as far as the Port of Ibben.[3]
