    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Glyphs

    AC Brotherhood One of the more challenging oddities found in the Assassin's Creed series of games are the hidden glyphs placed on buildings and other locations throughout Italy. In Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, glyphs can be found in ten different locations and they can sometimes be hard to find if you don't know exactly where to look. This game guide will show you the way.

    Note: Some locations will not be available until you have completed certain quests or missions in the game. It may even be easier for you to wait until you've completed most of the story missions before going after the glyphs.

    Caserma di Alviano

    Caserma di Alviano is located in the Campagna district and can be found north of the Coliseum. You can find the glyph on the outer wall, to the north side of the building. Just find a spot to climb up to the roof, then drop down over the top of the glyph to enter.

    Castra Praetoria

    Castra Praetoria is located in the northeast corner of the Campagna district. The glyph is really easy to find. All you need to do is walk under the portcullis (iron gate that lifts up) and turn on your Eagle Vision then look west. It's up on the middle part of the wall.

    Rosa In Fiore

    Rosa in Fiore Rosa in Fiore is located in the middle part of the east side of Rome. The glyph can be found on the north side of the building. A little bit of climbing can get you there easily.

    Palazzo Senatorio

    The Palazzo is located right in the middle of Rome, in the Centro district. Go around the building to where you are facing east, then look up where you'll see a wooden platform sticking out. The glyph location is right under it.

    Pantheon You may come across the glyph inside the Pantheon while doing one of the main quests in the game. You'll need to climb to the roof, then hang down from the edge and push down to use little handholds to make your way down the domed ceiling. If you've already done that mission where you have to sneak attack a guard inside, then just walk in the front door and go to the north side of the building. You'll see the glyph in the short side room there.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Puzzle Solutions

    If you need help solving the puzzles found in each glyph, be sure to check out this great YouTube video showing you all the steps. This video covers the puzzles found in Caserma di Alviano, Castra Praetoria, La Rosa in Fiore, Palazzo Senatorio, and the Pantheon. It's a good way to get you started, though I suggest you at least try the puzzles a couple of times before looking for cheats.

    Acquedotto Claudia

    Ezio - AC Brotherhood The Acquedotto Claudia is located in the southeast corner of Rome, in the Antico district. Find the broken aqueduct on the map, then go to that area and look for the ladder leading up to the top of the aqueduct. From there, start walking east a very long way until you come up on a tower, then turn on Eagle Vision and look on the north side of the wall for the glyph, then drop down into it.

    Aventino is located toward the southwest part of the city, in the Antico district. It has a very tall tower and if you get beside it and face south, you'll see the glyph way high up. Just climb up to it.

    Castel Sant'Angelo

    Castel Sant Angelo This one is hard to reach because it's considered a hostile area and you'll have to fight the guards or sneak past them. You want to get up to the wall running along the outside of the round center building, then go to the south side and look north for the glyph. Just be careful not to fall off because you may have to do a lot of backtracking to get back where you were.

    (Hint: To bypass all the guards on the bridge, jump across the pilings in the water below the bridge. It'll save you a lot of time.)

    Santa Maria Dei Miracoli and Santa Maria di Montesan

    This building can be found on the far north part of the map, in the Centro district. Climb the tower next to the front of the building and you'll see the glyph about halfway up.

    Colloseum The colliseum is right in the middle of the city and you'll visit it several times throughout the game. To reach the glyph, go to northwest corner of the building and look up to see it. The glyph is directly above the sign posted on the side of the building where you can pay to have it renovated. To reach it, you'll have to climb up to the top of the building, then drop down into the glyph.
