Guadosalam /gwadosə'ɫam/ is the city of the Guado where the gateway to the Farplane is situated in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. The city sits on the path from the north bank of the Moonflow and the southern trail of the Thunder Plains. It comprises three levels with the exits at the bottommost points, the path to the Farplane on the upper level, and the Palace—residence of the current leader—at the center. The city is inside an underground cavern where the walls and walkways are the twisted roots of the trees of the Moonflow's north bank and the city resembles an underground swamp.

Final Fantasy X[]

Guadosalam in-game.

Yuna and her guardians pass through Guadosalam on their pilgrimage and are invited to meet with Maester Seymour Guado who has taken an interest in the young summoner. After showing the group a magical sphere projection of the ancient Zanarkand and Lady Yunalesca, he proposes to Yuna.

Yuna heads to the Farplane to speak with the images of her parents and make her decision. The party accompanies her to speak with their own deceased loved ones, and Tidus and Yuna share a moment when she urges him to conjure an image of his mother, bringing up resentment towards his father Jecht.

Upon exiting the Farplane the former Guado Maester, Lord Jyscal, emerges through the gate and drops a sphere at Yuna's feet. She takes the sphere and sends Jyscal back to the Farplane. Yuna enters the Palace to deliver her decision to Seymour while the rest wait outside and contemplate what would happen if Yuna accepted the proposal. After learning Seymour has left for the temple at Lake Macalania, the group heads toward the Thunder Plains.

After the party escapes from Bevelle, they're unable to return to Guadosalam and the lands south of it until they gain access to the airship, due to their involvement in Seymour's death and Yevon branding them traitors. If the party returns to the city, they discover that the Guado have fallen into despair over the revelations about Seymour's true nature and the deaths of most of the younger Guado in battle against the Al Bhed and the party. The Guado are so devastated by this that they do little but await their end at the hands of Sin.

Final Fantasy X-2[]

The Guado brought the Musicians to Guadosalam.

Following Sin's defeat, the Eternal Calm was not a happy time for the Guado. The remaining Ronso sought vengeance for the crimes committed by Maester Seymour on their race and, fearing their retribution, the Guado fled Guadosalam and took refuge in the Macalania Woods. The city lay empty for a time until the Leblanc Syndicate made it their base of operations, with Leblanc turning the Palace into her personal chateau which is kept heavily guarded. Tobli, an aspiring stage producer, has office space in the city as well.

After acquiring uniforms to disguise themselves as members of the Leblanc Syndicate, Yuna, Rikku and Paine infiltrate Chateau Leblanc to retrieve a stolen sphere fragment. Shinra installs a CommSphere at Guadosalam where the Gullwings can view the city from their airship. If Yuna defeats Garik, the Guado return to Guadosalam with Tromell, Seymour's former butler, along with the musicians of the Macalania Woods. Tromell becomes the new leader of the Guado.

Spoilers end here.


Seymour's Mansion/Chateau Leblanc

The Guado Mansion home to the leaders of Guadosalam during the events of Final Fantasy X. In Final Fantasy X-2, the Leblanc Syndicate take over with Leblanc living in the mansion.

  • Wood Clearing

An underworld below the surface, it is a gathering place for the dead.

  • Time Capsule
Tobli Productions
Data Dealer

Once an inn, it has since become a hub for data collecting in Final Fantasy X-2.


Final Fantasy X[]

Affection mechanics[]

If Tidus talks with Lulu after Yuna enters Seymour's mansion, when talking to Lulu a third time she will say "I shouldn't have to say this, but don't fall in love with her [Yuna]". Replying "Too late" will increase Yuna's affection value by eight. Replying "You're more my type, Lulu" will increase Lulu's affection value by eight.

If Tidus talks with Rikku after Yuna enters Seymour's mansion, she will ask "It's your big chance, huh?" Replying "I guess you're right" will increase Yuna's affection value by eight. Replying "I'd rather have you, Rikku" will increase Rikku's affection value by eight.

Watching Kimahri leave the item shop will increase his affection value by six.

When the player returns to Guadosalam later on in the game, but before defeating Ginnem's Yojimbo in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth, speaking with Lulu in the Farplane will boost her affection value by eight.

After defeating Ginnem's Yojimbo in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth, speaking to Lulu in the Farplane will further increase her affection value by eight.

As in every other location, when the party is spread out, the one Tidus talks to first gains affection points.

Guado is the Italian word for the English "ford". In Italian Guado is also an alternative name for the Isatis tinctoria, a flowering plant.

Salam (سلام) is the Arabic word for "Peace". Its synonymous meaning in Indonesian and Malay language, Salam means "to greet" and "to shake one's hand upon meeting".

Together, the city's name roughly means to 'cross the shallow threshold in peace', likely referring to the location of the Farplane, and perhaps, 'to greet those who have passed on', likely referring to people coming to Guadosalam visit the dead who have passed on to the Farplane.
