Astarion needs to face his demons in Baldur’s Gate, and that means taking him to Cazador’s Palace in order to stop the Rite of Profane Ascension. Getting through Szarr’s house won’t be easy, and simply entering the palace is already challenging enough, but I have an easy pathway for you to bolster Astarion’s revenge. Here’s how to enter Cazador’s Palace in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Where to Find Cazador’s Palace in Baldur’s Gate 3

You can find the Szarr Palace by going all the way north of the Lower City Wall Gates, but even if it looks like the palace is on the other side of the gates, you don’t want to cross. Cazador’s Palace is located fairly high up, and you need to use the city walls to reach the vampiric hideout.

There is no direct path to the city walls without getting into trouble, but you can still get up there with decent athletics, spells, and the right platforms to hold up your party.

The best way to reach the palace is to spawn at the Lower City Central Wall and then move north to the wall itself. You will quickly find two NPCs speaking next to the wall, which has a gate, a small staircase, and a raised wooden platform. You want to have any of your agile characters jump onto the platform to start.

From the platform, you can jump onto the city wall. This area isn’t restricted until you move further, so don’t worry about the guards. Once all your agile characters are up, have your Rogues and Wizards use spells like Misty Step or Flight. I had Gale use Flight on some of my party before lightly gliding up to the top.

After everyone is on the wall, it’s time to move ahead to Cazador’s Palace. Simply follow the path north on the wall until you reach some guards that are clearly under the influence of Szarr. Either convince them to let you go through, or get ready to fight.

With all of these steps out of the way, you can reach the end of the wall to the north, where you will find Cazador’s Palace. However, it’s truly labeled as Szarr’s Palace on the Baldur’s Gate 3 map. Now Astarion can get his revenge.
