Once you have defeated the boss, you will see a chest best which is an altar that you can strike, causing it to lower into the ground, revealing a passage behind it.

Head straight down the stairs and continue forward until you reach a balcony filled with bodies. In front of you, you will see a wooden beam. Balance on top of the beam, and below, you will see another wooden beam.
