So here we meet Pierre's ex-girlfriend. Francine tells you that you have to cross the graveyard to get to the church. Underneath you will find a secret passage leading to Bouchard's Hideout. She tells you to climb the roofs. After the conversation search her cupboard for goodies. On the right you will find Health Pill and on the left you will find a Sports Watch. Leave the flat through the glass door with the sunblind.

Balconies and Ledges

Turn towards the next balcony. You can get there with a running jump. Press action to grab the ledge. If you look down you can see a passage with some VPacker Ammo. Climb over the railing onto the next part of the balcony. In the corner you will find a drainpipe, you can climb up. At the top climb over to the right and pull up onto the platform. Run across the ledge to the other side and don't stop since most of them will give way. At the end hang from the narrow ledge and shimmy to the right. Drop onto the tiny balcony there. Here is another climbable drainpipe leading down. Below is a locked door behind which you can find goodies. But we need another Powerup from the graveyard. Jump up towards the cable and monkey climb to the next balcony. Run to its end and hang from the ledge. Drop down onto the crypt. From here you can take a sideflip over the fence to reach the goodies in a moment. So keep this spot in mind.


Bug Warning:
Here I encountered another strange bug for the first time. You might also meet it at other spots earlier or later during the game. I approached that item with my back towards the right wall - behind it is the passage where the VPacker Ammo is. When I saw the hand symbol and pressed action Lara walked backwards, right through the wall, towards the VPacker Ammo and picked it up. You can get back it you turn around on the spot and press Action again. In my case Lara then went back through the wall and collected the Medipack.
Look down the passage to the left. At the end is the brown entrance gate. In the greenery on the right you can collect a Small Medipack. Now run into the other direction. Around the corner you will meet a dog. Kill him. When you move quickly you can do that without a gun. Behind the last crypt on the right you can find Health Bandages. Run a few steps back till you reach the little chapel. Right of it is a crypt you can climb onto. You can see this in the picture. From there you can jump onto the roof of the bigger crypt. Then onto the other bigger crypt on the other side.
Goodies: On the ledge above your head you can spot a Chocolate Bar. You can jump up there from the crypt you are on. - You an see the spot in the upper left corner of the picture - Jump back onto the crypt when you've collected the goody.
Now jump over the fence on the right onto a lower crypt.

Power Up and Statue

Drop down to the ground. Now examine the nearby crypt. You can open the door of it and Lara will get the next Power Up! (upper body strength) Inside you will find Ammo. In this fenced area you can also see a statue. You can push it to open the level exit, but I will come to that after the goodies.
Goodies: First you have to get out again, where you will find more goodies now that you are stronger. Climb back onto the crypt and jump over the fence onto the bigger crypt. Nearby on the left you will find another fenced crypt. Jump over the fence from one of the neighbouring crypts. Open the door to find Ammo and Health Bandages. After collecting them climb back onto the crypt and jump back over the fence. Another dog is now in the graveyard.

Now climb onto the crypt underneath the balcony where you came down at the beginning. With a sideflip you can make it over the fence into the yard behind. In the yard you will find a door you can now open. In the passage you can collect V-Packer Ammo. Return to the yard and find the drainpipe in the far left corner. Climb up. At the top you have to shimmy right to reach the ledge with the cable again. Climb along the cable to the other side. Follow the balcony to its end and carefully drop back onto the crypt.

Now climb back towards the fenced area where you found the power up.
Back there run towards the statue. Climb onto the ledge behind the statue and push it forwards. You need the powerup to achieve that. It will fall onto the crypt in front and open up a passage. Jump into the opening to make your way towards Bouchard's Hideout.
