If closing out Astarion’s storyline in Baldur’s Gate 3 interests you, you’ll need to confront Cazador. This is the vampire lord who controlled him for 200 years, and Astarion, your Rogue friend, now wants revenge. Once you make it to Act Three, you can find Cazador’s home in the Lower City. It isn’t easily accessible, so let me explain how you can enter Cazador’s Palace in Baldur’s Gate 3.
How to find the Szarr Palace in Baldur’s Gate 3
Also known as the Szarr Palace, Cazador’s home residence is located in the Lower City right outside Baldur’s Gate. The entrance isn’t right in front of you, there’s a roundabout way to get there. How you enter Cazador’s Palace in Baldur’s Gate 3 is by climbing the tower right on the Lower City Central Wall waypoint.
After spawning at this teleport waypoint, head around to the front of the building. The waypoint is on the outside of the Central Watch Tower. Head inside, and climb the stairwell. Out the next door, turn right, and enter the Szarr Palace South Tower.
Proceed through the door, climb up the ladder, and you’ll spot some guards. One of the guards, Merony, will ask that you leave, since you’re encroaching upon Cazador’s abode. Either make an Intimidation or Deception check to get past them without issue. Choose which option you’ll most likely succeed at, and if you beat the high DC, they’ll let you by with a Key to Ramparts Door.
Follow through upstairs, and you’ll reach the Upper Tower door. Through that door is another set of stairs, which you need to climb to get through another door. Finally, walk north, then take a left turn to find the entrance to the Szarr Palace. That’s all it takes to enter Cazador’s Palace! Now you can explore Cazador’s house, and help Astarion decide whether he should become an Ascendant Vampire, or end the ritual for good.
