Objective: Search for ruins in the cliffs

Once you are back in control of Lara proceed forwards along the Cliffside path. When you reach the dead end, hop up onto the cliff ledge in front and climb the wall to the top.

As soon as you pull yourself up onto the ledge above, you’ll see a small entrance with water flowing from it. Before approaching, follow the cliff ledge to the right to find a chest containing Relic [01/02 - Gilded Cross] . Move up to the circular entrance and Lara will automatically climb through.

Continue into the cave until a scene plays.

Climb the cliff (left) until you reach the entrance (right). Look on the ledge to the right for a Relic.

Objective: Explore the chamber of murals

After a brief cut-scene we’ll be able to explore the room. We’ll want to decipher the pillar in the center of the room (this is a Monolith and will reveal hidden items on the map), but won’t be able to do so until we have increased Lara’s proficiency in the Greek language. Fortunately, there are several Murals here that we can interact with for some back-story and to boost our Greek language skill. You can find the following:

  • A circular Mural [01/05 - Greek] next to the tunnel entrance we entered from.
  • A Mural [02/05 - Greek] in the alcove to the right of the pillar in the center of the room.
  • Another Mural [03/05 - Greek] on the wall at the top of the small ramp behind the pillar.
    Once you have examined all three of these Murals, your Greek language should move up to level 1 – high enough to interact with the pillar.

Trophy icon

Reading the marker will reveal the location of a Coin Cache [01/03] nearby. This particular one happens to be on the ground just to the right of the pillar. Approach the location of the icon on the map to have a button prompt appear.

Once you have boosted your Greek proficiency decipher the Monolith (left). Grab the fourth Mural before smacking down the weak wall (right).

With that out of the way, use the tunnel leading from the area. There is one final Mural [04/05 - Greek] in the tunnel here that we can utilize before interacting with the weak wall to bring it down.
