    The first treasure chest to avoid is going to be inside Lowtown, right of Old Dalan's place. The second one you are going to find when you are going into the palace before you receive the Goddess Tear. There are actually several chests that are in the Cellar that you pass through, and you cannot open the chests that are in the southeast corner area.
