"There's an old legend in this region about a dragon god and his divine protection. I think it may be true."

Daguerreo is a location in Final Fantasy IX. It is an indoor library of sorts near the Forgotten Continent. It can only be reached by airship (either Hilda Garde III or the Invincible) or Golden Chocobo. Some of the best weapons and armor in the game can be bought or synthesized here. However, before buying this equipment the player must fix the lift to the upper levels of the library. The lower levels of Daguerreo are flooded. Zidane and his friends meet the Master Treasure Hunter, the Four-Armed Man here. He is later revealed to be Gilgamesh. Also, it is possible for the player to rename the characters if they show a man here the rare Namingway Card. Zidane will also encounter a Cleyran survivor, Forest Oracle Kildea.

On the third floor's balcony, there is a stone that effects the altar. Use the action button on it, and go back to the first floor with the altar. The statue will now allow you to turn Ore into Aquamarine.

The Capricorn Stellazio coin is also in Daguerreo.

If you have the Key Item Magical Fingertip, the old man on the second floor will give you the Excalibur.

Trouble with the audio sample?

The theme that plays in Daguerreo is called "Secret Libary Daguerreo".


A daguerreotype is a type of early photography, invented by Louis Daguerre. The reason behind naming the library after the photographic technique is a matter of speculation.
