You’ll find the Secluded Cell Site of Grace in front of you if you head down the rubbled pavements.

Beyond the room should be the other walls of Stormveil Castle. A message on the ground will indicate that you are heading in the right direction. Stick to the walls on your left as you drop down the ground to get back indoors through the opened gate.
