And find worshippers in prayer standing before a portrait of Mary. There are benches provided for quiet reflection and candles to be lit. There are also tourists just passing through. As such I felt uncomfortable about distracting the devout worshippers.

So we heard that this place is important to the city as it was a sacred place of worship. While we appreciated that, we thought it wasnt as impressive as we thought it'd be. Nonetheless, one can easily access the gate, en route to St Mark's church.

The open air chapel/shrine under the stone gate is taken seriously by the native population, so let's all behave accordingly. It's a can't-miss and unlike anything else I've ever seen, so enjoy but do it quietly for those who are praying.

A beautiful sight in its own right, this gate has added gravitas as it remains a site of active worship. I was touched by the age and simplicity of the gate but also by the reverence of both locals and other travellers.

The serenity of this place is reason enough for a visit. If you stroll through in the later evening, you may find locals praying or singing songs. That's the real treat.

Not sure where the original stone work is but we didn't see it. Obviously a religious shrine for some but otherwise little value. If it wasn't for the tourist signs directing you to this gate we would not have recognised it as important.

This serves as one of the entrances/exits to Upper Town and now serves as a religious shrine. It is not overly amazing but it is worth a look while you are up here.

The gate is part of Zagrebs walking route around the Upper Town. This gate is more popular for what's just inside the gate, which is a picture of the Virgin Mary plus many plaques saying thank you. Many people say a prayer here, and when the prayer was realised, people would return with a thank you plaque. You can no... More

I have noticed that anyone that passes through the stone gate either stop and say a pray or bow and cross themselves in front of the chapel, there are always fresh flowers that people bring ,others light candles, there is a little shop there to by candles and souvenirs
