Places of power in Witcher 3: Wild Hunt provide you with free skill points that you can spend on your character build and also boost a particular magic sign for a period of time.
There are a total of 30 places of power spread throughout White Orchard, Velen, Novigrad, Skellige, Kaer Morhen, Toussaint, and one of the locations for the Through Space and Time quest.
Here you can find the map locations for all the places of power in the game.
Note: You can unlock all of the places of power and receive skill points again in New Game Plus (NG+).

White Orchard Places of Power
There are a total of 6 places of power in White Orchard.
Velen Places of Power
There are a total of 6 places of power in Velen. The place of power to the west of Fyke Isle is found underground, when you are doing the “Wandering in the Dark” quest with Keira Metz. Don’t worry if you missed it, you can always go back into the cave to get it.
Novigrad Places of Power
There are a total of 2 places of power in Novigrad, one on the big hill inside the city where all the Red Priests are, and one north of Vegelbud Residence.
Skellige Places of Power
There are a total of 9 places of power in Skellige Isles. It’s really hard to see the locations on one image so I broke it up into 5. One of the places is hidden inside the Kaer Tolde castle – to access it, fast travel to the castle, and go down into the cellar – there’s a weak wall that you call break open using Aard – the place of power is behind it.
The 9th and last Place of Power is located inside the cave for the Sunstone quest, near the end of the game (see below). I’m not entirely sure if this place of power is accessible before you do the quest.
Kaer Morhen Places of Power
There is 1 place of power in Kaer Morhen, located in the far north of the zone.
Toussaint Places of Power
Here are the five places of power found in Toussaint, the new area introduced in the Blood and Wine expansion.
Through Time and Space Place of Power
There is also a place of power that you can find during the “Through Space and Time” quest. Check out the video below at about 30-40 seconds for the location (it’s in the red world).
