Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata), Zagreb

4.1
#5 of 18 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.

  • Over hundreds of years, has been watching Zagreb citizens living historical stone gate but is under construction. Construction period has been extended. It is too bad. Here is the story I heard. The small chapel, enshrined by the Virgin Mary during the stone gate. Icon of Mary holding Jesus Christ in the chapel are enshrined, but it's in Zagreb great fire of 1731 miraculously unscathed, which survived the fire. Mary is also the guardian of the Zagreb daily Zagreb citizens dedicated to prayer, go to. Out of the gate of the stone Hill (kamenita Street /Kamenita ulica) will see pharmacy quaint on the right, left, up. This pharmacy's "in Zagreb's oldest pharmacy" is kept open from 1355. In 1399, Nicolo Alighieri Dante (author of "the Divine Comedy") son was working as a pharmacist here say...! And is across from the pharmacy chain is enshrined, but it's a chain of Admiral Nelson's victory and said, since 1878, is located here.

  • 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.
