As you explore The Witcher 3’s world, you’ll encounter Places of Power. These magical stones temporarily increase the intensity of Geralt’s Signs. You’ll also receive an Ability Point the first time you visit each Place of Power.
To use a Place of Power, approach the glowing stone and press the prompted button. Pressing it briefly will get you your Sign buff, but you’ll have to hold it down for a couple seconds to collect your Ability Point on your first visit.
Below, we’ve got a map for both Places of Power in Novigrad.

The free city of Novigrad is the third region you’ll explore in The Witcher 3. Once the Places of Power are marked as Points of Interest question marks (along with everything else remotely interesting in the region), you’ll have some exploring to do to reach them.
Use our map above to sort out which of those question marks are Places of Power. We’ve also labeled the area’s Signposts to make it easier to Fast Travel close to each.
Visiting a Place of Power will buff the associated Sign for 30 minutes.
