In the second part of the Side Mission (Star Crossed/Explore the Local Mysteries), Lara sets out to find a tomb described to her by the blind storyteller, Manu. (See the main walkthrough for details.)
After speaking with Manu return down the stairs to the riverbank southeast of the Mission. Instead of continuing straight on to Sara and Guillermo, follow the path to the left...
...to find the Riverside Base Camp. Talk to the man standing nearby to learn the location of an Empress Jaguar.
In the small, ruined building behind him, you'll find an archivist map (2/4)...
...and a document (12/27), Journal of T. Serrano 13 (Angel de la Cruz).
Now cross the rickety bridge with the "Prohibido El Paso" sign. (Because, again, Lara Croft.)
Just ahead on the right is a metal barrier. Blast it with your shotgun to get the gold ore hidden inside. Then continue across the next small bridge to a clearing with a bunch of extremely excitable wild turkeys.
If you have unlocked the Scavenger Skill Serpent's Glint, you can earn a quick achievement/trophy here. Select the pistol and hold Alt Fire to craft a Flare Round using black powder and fat from your inventory.
Now shoot one at any of the turkeys.
NOTE: If you're revisiting this area and the Thanksgiving turkeys won't spawn, try quitting and restarting the game. The birds should appear normally.
Off to the right, near the is another flagpole (5/5). Cut the pulley to raise the flag. If you've found all the others, this will complete the Raise the Flags Challenge.
Just beyond the flagpole is a broken footbridge. Jump across to the ledge on the other side to find a relic (4/9), a Decorated Crucifix (The Missionary).
The climbing wall on the right leads back up to the road. If you like, you can climb up...
...and talk to the man standing by the road. He'll tell you about the condor in the area on the way to the CRYPT and reveal its location on your map.
We have business to the southeast, though, so when you're finished, climb back down to where you found relic #4 and jump back across the water to the crumbling bell tower in the clearing, or run a rope line down to the tower and return that way.
If you have the ROPE ASCENDER, you can open the reinforced door at the base of the tower. To do this, shoot a rope arrow into the coil, just as you would for a normal wooden barrier. Then hold Interact to activate the ascender and pull down the barrier.
NOTE: If you haven't acquired the ASCENDER yet, don't worry. You'll have another chance soon.
Inside is another relic (5/9), an Old Tome (The Missionary).
