Via Veritas is the seventeenth Story Mission in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This walkthrough will guide you through the whole Via Veritas mission.
Region: Mission of San Juan
Quest Giver: automatic
Requirement: having finished Downpour
Talk to Abby’s Friend
Lara, Jonah & Abby head to the Mission of San Juan, a small christian village.
Abby has a friend who is an archaeologist and hopes that she might be of help. Indeed she heard about the clue Lara tells her about and sends us to the Library of the village, as it is the oldest building and our best bet for now.
Find the Secret Crypt
The library is on the other side of the village and its condition of the building tells us that it shouldn’t be crowded inside.
The first clue we need to uncover is a mural which is on the right from where we entered (you can see the light from outside in the picture below – this is the entrance).
The large mural of the Heron and the Eclipse will come into play in just a second.
Upstairs, there is a book right next to the stairs and reading it gives us confidence that we are indeed in the right place here.
The second clue we need is another mural on the upper floor. It is pretty much located directly over the door we have entered the library.
Find the Heron and Eclipse
Find the Cross
This concludes the Via Veritas main mission. The next mission Via Crucis will start immediately after the sequence.
