Unlike Gondor's other cities, Osgiliath possesses no rural hinterland of its own. Its walls straddle the boundaries of the provinces of Anórien and Ithilien in the midst of the Anduin vale. The two halves of the city rise gently from the eastern and western banks of the Great River. Here, at its narrowest point, the Anduin ranges between twenty-nine and thirty-six hundred feet in width. Four large bridges span the breadth of the river. They reach the city by way of small islet near to the eastern bank.
The district of Tol Gilthoniel comprises the islands on the Anduin. It is the centre of the city and home to :
- Rond Giliath, the basilica where the Council of Gondor gathers.
- Dome of Stars- the Dome after which the whole city got its name is home to the Palantír of Osgiliath.
