The magical Macalania Woods

Macalania is a geographical area of Spira in Final Fantasy X. Macalania is comprised of a vast forest filled with beautiful springs and campsites; a frozen Lake, where one of Rin's Travel Agencies can be found; and a magnificent ice palace: Macalania Temple which sits atop the frozen waters.

The ancestral protectors of Macalania are the three races of Musicians: a tall, blue-colored bird-like race with harps, a short race with saxophone-like instruments, and a rotund race with drums. The Guado are exiled to the woods in Final Fantasy X-2.

Final Fantasy X

A beautiful, glittering, maze-like bluish forest, the woods serve as setting for several plot developments to the story. Auron recalls an encounter with the Spherimorph and receives the first Jecht Sphere; the party hides out in the woods after escaping from Bevelle; and the Spring is the setting for Tidus and Yuna's romantic cut scene set to Suteki Da Ne.

Final Fantasy X-2

Although there is no requirement to visit Macalania during the direct story of X-2, several optional missions are available to gain items, dresspheres, and even change the fate of the Woods.

The woods look much the same as they did in Final Fantasy X but are dying due to the fayth at Macalania Temple fading away. The Guado have also sought refuge here after being forced to leave Guadosalam by the vengeful Ronso. Completing several missions involving the Ronso and Guado will result in saving the woods.

Yuna also confronts some emotional issues when she visits the Spring and fondly recalls her time there with Tidus.

Macalania Temple

Tidus: They say Seymour went to Macarena Temple.
Wakka: Macalania Temple.
Tidus: Aye!

The Temple is located north of the Macalania Woods. Constructed primarily of ice, the temple sits atop the frozen Lake Macalania. The High Priest of Macalania Temple is Maester Seymour Guado and it is here he is fought and killed by High Summoner Yuna and her Guardians. Both the temple's Fayth and its Aeon are female.

In the European and International versions of Final Fantasy X, Dark Shiva is summoned by a Guado priest at the entrance to the temple when the party returns with the airship.

Following their banishment from Guadosalam, the diminished effect of the Guado's protection and the disappearance of the Fayth caused the lake to melt, and the temple sank to the bottom of Lake Macalania. As such, the road ends at the Travel Agency and the temple is not accessible in Final Fantasy X-2.

Temple Aeon

Temple Trials

A series of puzzles involving ice, the Destruction sphere of Macalania is needed to get Anima in Baaj Temple. Unique to this temple is the fact that the trials are completed when leaving the Chamber of the Fayth after receiving the Aeon.

Trouble with the audio sample?

The music that plays in the Macalania Woods is called Macalania Forest. Like other tracks on the Final Fantasy X soundtrack, its main melody is a variation of a motif present in the Hymn of the Fayth.
