Located close to Upper Town, it is a Catholic religious shrine. Interesting to see but value of site is religious, not touristic.

It is a must to go through this "porta" (door) and say a prayer as Croatians have been doing for centuries... you can even light a candle if you feel inclined to do it.

To be honest I think I expected too much of it. At the end of the day there is not much there to see. Unfortunate but true. There are a lot of people that come by so I guess it's on everyone's agenda... not necessary...

This is a small place for people to go worship. Cut into the wall the little chapel has pews for prayers, candles one can light and a shrine. It was quite different from anything else I had seen

A historical gateway to the old uptown fort area, well preserved. Interesting to see the "Thank you" tiles all over the walls.

Part of the Zagreb past and an important part of the present. A place of tranquility and peace. Place of peace and meditation. Place of prayer and intercession. Place of answered prayers and prayer. Hundreds of thousands of people here prayed and lit a candle. An indispensable place for every believer.
