The Island of Avalon is a location in Arthurian legend
, a magical place where Excalibur
was forged and Arthur
was taken after being mortally wounded at Camlann. The waters about the island are supposedly a Healing Spring
, though this was also only legend to the characters of myth. Avalon is the home of Morgan Le Fay
and Lily of Avalon, and in some stories of The Lady of the Lake
, as well. It is supposedly located at present Glastonbury Tor. In some stories, rather than have magical waters that sustain its inhabitants, it instead is home to the Holy Grail
and drinking from this is what grants health and immortality.
