Vaes Tolorro is the name given by Daenerys Targaryen to an abandoned city in the red desert beyond the Morze Dothraków. Vaes Tolorro means the city of bones in the Dothrakowie language.[1]

Description

The city has large white walls encircling it, though they are cracked and crumbling. There are also wall towers. The city gates are broken. [1]

The city is a maze of narrow, crooked alleys. The buildings are built close together, their facades blank and chalky. All buildings are windowless. Some of the houses have long fallen into rubble, and other buildings seem damaged by fire. The remnants of a gutted palace stand before a windswept plaza. Devilgass grows between the paving stones. [1]

A marble plinth stands at the crossroads between six alleys. But no statue stands above the plinth. The Dothrakowie are presumed to have visited the city, taking its statues to Vaes Dothrak.[1]

The city has vegetation. There are grapevines, fig trees, peach trees, and other fruit trees in the abandoned gardens, hidden behind closed doors. There is enough grass to sustain a small herd of horses. Its wells contain pure and cold water. [1] There are also small animals in the city, most notably flies and red scorpions. [1]

There are remnants of the previous inhabitants in the city: the skulls of the unburied dead, bleached and broken. The twisty alleys contain old bronze coins, bits of purple glass, stone flagons with handles carved like snakes. [1]

Vicinity

To the south of the city, the barren Red Waste continues until one reaches a bleak ocean shore and the "poison water". This area contains only swirling sand, wind-scoured rocks, and plants with sharp thorns. The bones of an immense smok can also be found there. [1]

To the southwest lie two more abandoned cities, similar to Vaes Tolorro but smaller in size. One city is surrounded by a ring of skulls, mounted on rusted iron spears. The second city seems more inviting to explorers. While exploring it, Aggo finds an iron bracelet. The bracelet is set with an uncut fire [[Opal. There are scrolls within the city, dry and crumbling. Not suitable for transportation. The land of this entire area is burren and burnt.[1]

To the southeast lies an inhabited city: Qarth. [1]

They make camp within its walls to recover from their travels while sending out scouts to discover what is near.[1] Daenerys estimates that Vaes Tolorro and the cities of its vicinity were destroyed by enemies, crossing the Red Waste to reach them. She has no clear date for the events but estimates them to have happened "in ancient days". [1]

While inhabiting the city, Daenerys' Brat Krwis are sent to explore its vicinity. Jhogo reaches Qarth and returns to Vaes Tolorro with tree new companions: Pyatt Pree, Xaro Xhoan Daxos, and Quaithe. [1] The khalasar soon leave Vaes Tolorro, heading for Qarth. [2]
