Artana is a walled settlement, located protected on the hillside by River Yeirinos, near to the crossing where it joins River Farinos. The hills form a natural protection from enemies, and it is said that the city has never been raided.

Fountains from the nearby hills feed aqueducts, that serve the city with clean water and drainage, and help to water the fields surrounding the area. The hills also have forests, that serve as hunting grounds.

Trade and industry

Artana is located on a traditional trade route between the Yamenawa mountains and the heartlands of the Farensal.
