Map and hidden item locations

Just past Entrance, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night moves to Garden of Silence. This area pushes deeper into to castle, but you’ll have to do some backtracking and exploring before you can proceed.

Garden of Silence connects to Entrance, Forbidden Underground Waterway, Bridge of Evil, and Tower of Twin Dragons.

Below, we’ve included several maps of Garden of Silence, broken down by the ability you’ll need to access each new area. The maps are in chronological order based on when you get each new ability. The more you scroll, the farther into the game you go.

Garden of Silence on the first visit

Your first visit to Garden of Silence will be pretty brief. The chariot on the bridge is blocked, and there’s a nasty iron maiden on the path underneath. On your first time here, you’re ultimately just going to climb up one floor, and then head back into Entrance.

Before you get back to Entrance, through, drop through the floor to collect a Max HP Up.

Garden of Silence with Craftwork

Once you defeat Craftwork in Dian Cecht Cathedral and pick up the Craftwork Shard ability, you’ll be able to explore a lot more Garden of Silence. When you move the block preventing the chariot from moving, it’ll carry you to the other side of the bridge, opening the path to several other areas — along with a teleport room and a save room. Craftwork will also let you move the iron maiden below.

There’s a chest above where the chariot stops that you can climb to. Pick up the Max HP Up on your way.

Garden of Silence with Double Jump

Once you’ve gotten the Double Jump ability from Andrealphus in Livre Ex Machina, there’s one new chest and a Max MP Up to collect in Garden of Silence.

Garden of Silence with Invert

Later, when you get the Invert ability from Orobas in Inferno Cave, you’ll be able to reach the final chest in Garden of Silence. This one contains a Black Belt that increases your attack speed.
