Casterly Rock, also known simply as the Rock, is the stronghold of House Lannister and the administrative center of the Westerlands. It was built by the Corlos, the founder of the extinct House Casterly.

Casterly Rock overlooks the harbor of Lannisport and the Sunset Sea. Nearby strongholds include Kayce and Feastfires to the west, Sarsfield to the north, and Cornfield and Clegane's Keep to the south.
