The Citharede Abbey is a small abandoned abbey found on the top of a large plateau, east of Al Kharid. In the past, followers of Saradomin appear to have lived here, but seem to have eventually abandoned the abbey, resulting in it falling into disrepair.

Players can get to the Abbey by teleporting to the Duel Arena with a Ring of Dueling and travelling South-East.

Before reaching the abbey, players can find Dr Ford, who has seemingly gone mad through the whispers coming from the nearby hole that only he can hear. Further south, a blocked cave entrance and what appears to be an abandoned battlefield where hill giants reside.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

A tall platform with hay bales on the bottom, a homage to the iconic Leap of Faith from the Assassin's Creed franchise.
  • In RuneScape, the Citharede Abbey is the scene of the murder mystery quest One Piercing Note.
  • The name 'Citharede' comes from the musical instrument 'Cithara', which was the sacred instrument of Saint Elspeth, the namesake of the abbey in RuneScape.
  • On the western end of the hill, a platform can be seen with several hay bales on the bottom. This is a reference to the Leap of Faith from the Assassin's Creed franchise, in which members of the Assassin Brotherhood leap from tall buildings into soft piles of hay uninjured.
