Assassin’s Creed: Unity Nostradamus Enigma Symbols Locations

Each symbol has riddle which, once decrypted, leads to another symbol.

You need to keep on doing this until you get to the last symbol. One good thing about these missions is that all symbols are located in the same vicinity.

I would recommend synchronizing all View Points in the area to make this relatively easier.

After all symbols of a puzzle are found, Arno will receive a Fragment which can be used in a secret room of the Café Theater located in the Mansion’s Basement.
