The Gates of Dawn are half-gate, half-chapel, an interesting combination. The gate itself is part of a defensive wall that was built in the 16th century-- it is the only remaining gate out of the original nine. Above the gate is a chapel with a very famous miraculous Madonna painting. When we visited, the chapel was packed with worshipers, and more could be seen approaching the gate on their knees to pay their respects.
