This is an interesting transition from upper and lower Zagreb. The path narrows as you go through it, so it can get crowded.

Nice gate on the way to upper town, filled with names thanking saint maria. It is not very big but special with candles lite and gives a nice feeling as you pass by. A few minutes walk up a rather steep street from the main square of Zagreb.

I was looking for Stonegate, and came across this chapel/place of warship. Very solemn, and simple, and spiritual. The gate, his self, was somewhat underwhelming, but has historical significance.

The history of the fire & the apparition of The Virgin Mary who was credited with saving the gateway following the fires of 1731 ( ... I think that detail is correct) still holds a place for Thanksgiving. The Archway is a chapel or shrine which is actively used at all times. The tiles of Thanksgiving on the wall are worth noting, & the initial use was to record a person or families Thanks for an outcome of prayer or devotion. The Painting which escaped the fire is a little difficult to appreciate.

This Stone Gate (Archway) is one of the four original entries into walled Lower Town and still in use. It is believed that when a disastrous fire in 1731 destroyed the town, a vision of Virgin Mary was seen the burnt Ash at this entry. The Gate was reconstructed in 1760 and remained untouched till now. This is a very sacred place for locals, particularly ladies, to pray the church pews, black sooted ceiling. I witnessed a heart touching scene here when two ladies lighted candles at small altar and emotionally praying in tears. An unnoticeable location, but this symbol of unwavering faith remain as most memorable moment for me.
