In the second movie Ithilien is where Faramir and his rangers ambushed the men of Harad.
|here Faramir stood and wondered about the future of Gondor|
This was one of the coolest locations, because you could visit and walk the actual battlegrounds where Faramir's men fought the men of Harad and defeated an Oliphant.
|we walked right through where the battle took place|
|up on this cliff the Hobbits watched the battle|
|view from the cliff|
Still not enough, following said walking track a little longer you come upon the place where Smeagol catched some fish for the Hobbitses.
