The Northern Ruins, later known as the Hero's Grave, is where Crono's party freed Cyrus' ghost in Chrono Trigger. It exists in both 600 A.D. and 1000 A.D.

The Northern Ruins are located in the northern portion of the Southeastern continent of the World Map. Choras is located to the south.


The Hero's Grave

One of the tasks before facing Lavos is freeing Cyrus' ghost.

Crono's party heads to the Northern Ruins in 1000 A.D. but can't get into the Ruins due to Cyrus' ghost. So the party tried entering the Ruins in 600 A.D., but can't because the place is falling apart and is in need of repairs.

They go to nearby Choras to recruit a carpenter to repair the Ruins.

After the structure is repaired, the party finds Cyrus' tombstone and Frog pays his respects. Knowing Frog is safe, Cyrus' spirit is released and able to move on to the afterlife. But before he goes, he energizes the Masamune making it more powerful. That's when Masa and Mune appear for a moment, eager to see the new blade in action.

After Cyrus' spirit is freed, the Northern Ruins become known as the Hero's Grave.
