Chronolith Trials are a part of the side activities in Final Fantasy XVI. They are stone monoliths that take you to a trial level where you can test your mastery over a specific Eikon. There are seven of them in the game, strewn all over the world of Valisthea. I found that discovering their locations can be quite challenging, so if you're struggling to find them all like I was, this guide will help you!

You can access the Chronolith Trials by discovering the vertically placed stone slabs, not unlike the Arete Stone in Cid's Hideaway. Each Chronolith Trial will test your mastery of a specific Eikonic power that you own.
