Climb up to the chapel and see the image up close, visible from the street below. It is a small chapel in the arch of the gateway - unique

This is a fabulous location. Yes, there are stories of miracles and many people come as a pilgrimage. But the architecture alone is enough to draw in the crowds

Going from our hotel - the gates of dawn was our "entrance" to the city of Vilnius. We enjoyed walking here.

Beautiful religious relic (the "Vilnius Madonna" a Renaissance style of religious painting) visible from the street through a window above an historic gate to the old city (dating from the 16th century).

The small prayer room is lavishly decorated with silver and gold. Photos not permitted inside but you can them through the window from the street below. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Had a break in Vilnius in June 2018 and decided to vist this place. Good to see but not much to keep your interest once you're there maybe worth a 15 minute visit and then move on.

Thank Andy M
