The council of ilIlluminati actually meets in the Old Royal Navy College at Greenwich, London, England, not in the church of Santa Maria Della Salute on the Grand Canal of Venice, Italy. It is the great baroque masterpiece of English architecture and its painted hall is probably the finest dining hall in the Western world.
Lara rides her bike across Tower Bridge on the way to the auction house, and returns roaring through Leadenhall Market, a covered market in the center of London. The Harry Potter movies occasionally use this as 'Diagon Alley' where the wizards go to shop...
Lara can be seen in the Great Hall of Dulwich College during the auction at the beginning of the film. The college is an independent day and boarding school for boys aged 7-18, with co-educational kindergarten and infants school.
The interior, with Indian carvings, of the home of villainous lawyer Manfred is shot at Elveden Hall, a private house once for an exile Indian Sikh prince at Suffolk. It is also featured in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut as the site of the eerie orgy.
Lara flew to Angkor Wat of Cambodia to find one of the mystic Triangle of Light piece. The temples of Angkor, built by the Khmer civilization between 802 and 1220 AD, represent one of humankind's most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. It was mysteriously abandoned by the Khmer civilization two centuries later. The jungle soon overwhelmed Angkor Wat, hiding it for several centuries with thick tropical foliage until it was discovered by a French naturalist in 1861.
