Assassin's Creed II Guide

Templar Lairs

Templar Lairs are much like Assassins Tombs in that they require the solving “climbing puzzles” to uncover treasure -- florins, in this case.

These three maps are not part of the main game (well, they are on the disc, but you need a code to unlock them). Those who either pre-ordered Assassin’s Creed II or purchased one of the special editions of the game may have one or more of these maps. For those who didn’t, the “Sequence 13: Bonfire of the Vanities & Secret Locations DLC,” priced at $7.00 USD (or 560 Microsoft Points), contains Sequence 13 and the three Templar Lair locations bundled with the collector’s editions of the game.
