'''Dawnstar Sanctuary''' is an old, abandoned [[Dark Brotherhood (Skyrim)|Dark Brotherhood]] sanctuary. It is said to be one of the oldest Dark Brotherhood sanctuaries in [[Skyrim]], and hasn't been occupied in over a century.
{{Quote|Oh, it's ancient. Apparently one of the first Sanctuaries in Skyrim. It hasn't been used by the Brotherhood in close to a hundred years.|[[Astrid (Skyrim)|Astrid]]|The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim}}

[[Cicero]] flees to the sanctuary during the quest "[[The Cure for Madness]]." At the end, the [[Last Dragonborn|Dragonborn]] has the choice to spare or kill Cicero, although the latter is more dangerous. When attacked, he drops his wounded facade and fights back with surprising ferocity. "The Cure for Madness" must be completed before the sanctuary can be used. To enter the sanctuary, the Dragonborn must reply correctly to [[The Black Door]]'s question: ''"What is life's greatest illusion?"'' The correct answer is, ''"Innocence, my brother."'' The incorrect answers are as follows:

If an attempt is made to enter the sanctuary before the passphrase has been obtained from ''[[Cicero's Journal, Final Volume]]'', the option for the correct phrase is not available and the door will reply, ''"You are not worthy,"'' similarly to the original [[Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary (Skyrim)|Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary]]. This sanctuary becomes the new home for the Dark Brotherhood following the destruction of the original one during the quest "[[Death Incarnate]]."

*The stained glass window of Sithis is broken when first entering the sanctuary, and a path leads to a tunnel system. When the sanctuary is restored, a hidden alternate entrance is added, which uses the newly replaced stained glass as a door, activating the door simply transports the player next to the Khajiit caravan, just outside Dawnstar (north-east of the caravan's tents location). There, on the ground, amongst a few trees and some rocks a hidden entrance can now be used to gain access to the sanctuary, instead of using the Black Door/main entrance by the shore.

*The stained glass window of Sithis is broken when first entering the Sanctuary, and a path leads to a tunnel system. When the Sanctuary is restored, a "secret entrance" is added, which uses the newly replaced stained glass as a door (though this is never seen; activating the door simply transports the player to where the Khajiit caravan sets up), so it is possible that the secret entrance uses some of the tunnel behind the window.
*When visited during "[[Hail Sithis!]]" before fixing the sanctuary, the broken stained glass window no longer leads to the ice cave; it shows only a pillar and the corner of the chamber. The passages to the crypts is also blocked off by a wall.

*{{PS3}} Equipment placed on the mannequin in the master bedroom will not appear until after leaving and re-entering the Sanctuary. When apparel is added or removed or the [[Shrouded Armor]] is removed from it, equipment may not be able to be added to those spots without the arms, legs and torso disappearing. The head remains, however.

**Solution: The Dragonborn should add the armor that is desired to be shown on the mannequin, as well as a necklace. The mannequin menu should be left, and then opened again. Once the necklace is removed, all pieces of armor will be visible again upon exiting the menu. The necklace trick can be repeated as desired if the armor is changed.

*{{PS3}} It is possible to become stuck in the icy area that must be ventured through to reach the torture chamber after "The Cure for Madness." If the Dragonborn stands in front of the door next to the bedroom that the male Dark Brotherhood Initiate is in, they may be pushed through the wall and fall into the icy chamber underneath the Sanctuary. The only way out is to continue through the path to a torch floating in the air. Just past it, the path emerges back in a hallway in the Sanctuary. Looking back, the floating torch will be seen on a wall (it cannot be gone back through).
