Area Convent of Our Lady of the Charred Visage.png

The Convent of Our Lady of the Charred Visage is an abbey located atop the snowy mountains, and is accessible via Graveyard of the Peaks. Its sisters are dedicated to the worship of a woman named Áurea, who burnt her face with boiling oil after her likeness was continuously used as a symbol of divinity. Her wounds continue to burn and do not heal despite the passage of time. The Church took this to be the work of the Miracle, thus she was canonized and referred to as Our Lady of the Charred Visage, with this convent founded in her name.

In order to gain acceptance into the convent, one must make pilgrimage through the treacherous mountains to reach the abbey. Once there, the hopeful sister will burn her face with hot oil, just as Our Lady of the Charred Visage once did. The sisters wear golden masks to hide their facial burns.

A lift accessed in Wall of the Holy Prohibitions connects these two areas. Using the lift grants access to a new section that was not accessible before. There is also a lift down and to the right from the first Prie Dieu.

Many enemies in this area deal fire damage, and one variety of the Sister of the Charred Visage enemy pulls chains that trigger vats of lava to fall onto the Penitent One and block the path. There are also rooms with toxic gas. After the boss fight, there is a chalice with burning oil that can be used to fill the Golden Thimble as a part of Gemino's quest line.

There is a Mea Culpa Altar towards the top right of the area and the Lady of the Six Sorrows can be found in the section accessed using the lift from the Wall of the Holy Prohibitions.

The boss of this area is Our Lady of the Charred Visage.
