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.

  • Definitively one of top 5 place in Zagreb must see. Renewed super nice and great place to walk through from lover part of Zagreb to Upper Old Town. Must see!
  • It's a walk through church. Do the walking tour and thy will explain the interesting history behind this sight.
  • Maybe not WOW place, but have a big history and you can feel it.
  • A relic of old Zagreb and those of the faithful. You can feel the energy when you enter the passageway. The wooden painting that survived the fire at the turn of the century still is housed in this archway. May come to pray to Mother Mary for help. You will find many stone tiles thanking the Mother for helping heal them of their ailments. There is also a small row of pews for those who with to sit and pray, meditate or give thanks. It's a lovely holy place with a lot of energy. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND any one who visits Zagreb to come by this mini holy site.
  • More like an archway with a chapel than a gate, but worth seeing.
