The Resident Evil Village treasure under the stronghold is a frustrating icon you'll find on your your map before you can actually get to it. You just won't know that at the time and likely spend ages trying to work out how to reach it. Which is why you're probably here. You can see the treasure marked on the stronghold location when you look at the Resident Evil Village map not long after you fight a group of lycans, but just because you can see it, it doesn't mean you can get it. Yet.

If you've been trying to reach it, don't worry. You'll be able to access to the Resident Evil Village treasure under the stronghold eventually and coming up we'll show you where so you don't miss out.

That's because the stronghold treasure is actually quite some way underground, and you'll have to push through more of the stronghold before you can get near it. There's a lot of lycans to kill in a series of set piece battles that take you deeper into the stronghold, and eventually underground, via a big spiral staircase. Eventually you'll face off against one of the big hammer wielding werewolf bosses, and once you've defeated him you're nearly there. 

With the big wolf down you'll pass though a crystal cave littered with fragments, so make sure you shoot every glint you can see for crystals you can sell to the Duke. Once you've got everything their head on through to a room where you'll find Heisenberg's flask, and get a message from him.

When that's done you'll be able to leave by going down some stairs and getting on a boat. However, check to your left as you come through the door into the boat area as you'll find the elusive Resident Evil Village treasure under the stronghold on a table - a big gold plate you can grab and also sell for cash. As you can see from the map, the area you find the treasure in has nothing to to do with the area you're in when you first find it.
