Walk over there by keeping behind the columns. Use the power switch and the water drains out. George moves to the right but the guard pulls the power switch backs on.
When the guard goes back to sit down, go back to the control panel. Use the paper clip on the power switch. This shorts the power switch. Move George to hide.
Wait until the guards talk and move away. Immediately go down to the dry fountain and click on the center statue. Need another pair of hands. Use the Anna Maria icon on the statue. Together Anna Maria and George push the statue and a hole is revealed. Go down the hole.
Searching the catacombs:
Pipes - Walk the walkway with the pipes running on the wall. At intervals are red valves that change the flow of the water in the pipe. Close to the end of the pipes at lower pipe, there's a gauge that shows some amount of water running through the pipes. Click on it and George says not a lot. At the end of the line of pipes, there's light colored block on the wall. Let's divert all the water to the pipe close to this light colored block.
Divert the water flow - Starting from the rightmost red lever, turn the valves to get the water to flow: left, down, top-down and bottom- left. Then turn the red round valve to close. Check the gauge on the left and note that pressure is very high now. Now, turn the last valve on the line to valve open.
See the light colored block pops out.
The first - Find the knights who share a horse, And grasp the stone that opens the way.
2 knights on a horse - Climb through the hole on the wall. Go forward until the ledge. Climb down to the citadel floor. Look at the white drawing at the center of the floor - 2 knights on a horse.
Following the manuscript clue - click the Anna Maria icon on the button right of the closed door. Move George to stand on the drawing of the knights on the horse at the center of the room before Anna Maria presses the button. The door opens.
The second - Address the arms upon the shields,
Knight 1 - Go through the door and forward to an open chamber. Go left of the open doorway and see a statue of a knight holding a shield. Look close to see a puzzle.
The black symbols at bottom of the page of the manuscript showed cross, Star of David, crescent moon and cross.
The next progression from that icon arrangements would be moon, cross, star, moon.
Click on the Roman numerals to turn the icons to show = moon, cross, star, moon.
The entryway opens on the right to reveal another knight statue.
Knight 2 - Study the manuscript and note the position of the fleur-de-lis on the left of the text.
Note that the red fleur-de-lis on the manuscripts shows 2 top and then 2 left. Logically, the next set will be 2 red bottoms.
The blue fleur-de-lis showed one bottom, 2 right blues and one top. Logically, the progression would be 2 of blue at a position. So the next in sequence would be one top and one left blue fleur-de-lis.
Solution - Arrange the top circle with blue on top and red at bottom. The bottom circle should be arranged to have the blue on the left and the red at the bottom.
Knight 3 - Study the coat of arms at top right of the manuscript.
The top left quadrants of the manuscript shields in order left to right:
1. Showed blue fleur-de-lis, the next gold fleur-de-lis and then blue. The logical next color will be gold fleur-de-lis.
2. Showed gold background, then blue background and then gold background. The next logical color will be blue background.
The top right quadrants of the manuscript shields in order left to right: Showed 2 gold lions in blue background, then 2 blue (from previous background) lions in white background and then 2 white (from previous background) lions in red background. The logical next one would be 2 red lions (from previous background) in gold background (from lion colors).
The bottom left quadrants of the manuscript shields in order left to right: Showed 2 white lions in red background, next is one red lion in gold background and then 3 gold lions in blue background. The logical next one would be 2 blue lions in white background.
The bottom right quadrants of the manuscript shields in order left to right: Showed 1 gold fleur-de-lis in red background, next is ?# white fleur-de-lis in gold background and then 2 gold fleurs-de-lis in white background. The logical next one would be ?# white fleur-de-lis in gold background.
Solution - Arrange the tumbler: top left to 3 yellow fleurs-de-lis on blue background, bottom left to 2 blue lions on white background, top right 2 red lions on yellow background, and bottom right to one white fleur-de-lis on yellow background. Hear a click.
And close the circle for the knights to let you pass.
