Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata), Zagreb

4.1
#5 of 17 in Historic Sites in Zagreb
In 1731, a disastrous fire burned down all the wooden parts of Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata), except the one item that was later found in the ashes: a painting of the Virgin and Child. Since then, this 13th-century gate has been a famous pilgrimage site. In the passageway you'll see a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God with her statuette, and plaques that the locals leave to convey gratitude to loved ones. They consider this place one of the symbols of the city. You may light a candle if you wish.

  • Gate in Chapel and hold Jesus Virgin Mary icon was enshrined. This is miraculously unscathed in Zagreb great fire of 1731 and had the Virgin Mary is also the guardian of the Zagreb, daily Zagreb citizens to pray it is coming. Church and Cathedral, now feels that even if "Stone Gate" is a sacred place, actually visited.

  • This looks like it is just going to be a tunnel, but when inside you see that it is like a small little chapel that you can walk through. Inside they have candles and pews so that you can pray.  more »
  • The works belong to traverse Zagrebe if you walk out that door already in front of you. Suffer as a souvenir photo while you're at it.

  • As Zagreb native, this place means a lot to me. It has great historical, religious and cultural meaning for Zagreb. What I like about it is that they are last gates standing, left as remains of old city fortification and grest reminder how old and amazing Zagreb is.
  • Interesting to see and walk pass through. There are believed that you should not walk pass in the middle. If you do, you won’t have a chance to get married. At the top of the roof, there are some clubs like with thorn. It is for expelling the witch during 18th century.
  • a wonderfull - silent passage with the traces of past time and a beautiful oath site for citizens where candles can be light ...also the famous painting that remained intact in a fire in 1731. showing Virgin Mary with baby Jesus can be seen
  • Peaceful. If you're a Catholic you can say a prayer there. If not, still a spot to visit for tourists
  • A beautiful place with a hight spiritual charge. Gives easily the peace of mind.
