Assassin's Creed II Guide

Assassin Tombs

To unlock the “Armor of Altair” set in the Sanctuary inside the Villa Auditore in Monteriggioni, you must collect six seals from the tombs of assassins long past.

There are six such tombs in Assassin's Creed II. The first tomb you will visit is under the Santa Maria Novella during Sequence 4 as part of the main story. The other five tombs are optional, but will appear on the map (denoted by an assassin's symbol icon) when they become available.

The tombs are hidden deep within each location, and require the completion of a number of “climbing puzzles” to uncover.

Collect all six seals and plug them into the indentations on the base of each statue in the Sanctuary to obtain the Armor of Altair, which is the strongest armour in the game and never needs to be repaired.

The “Armor of Altair” Set

In this section you will find a video walkthrough of each tomb, since written instructions would just be hard to follow (and to write).
