The Gargoyle Gate is a passage at Hogwarts Castle, connecting the main grounds with a small forest section. The gate is on a small paved courtyard, and it is comprised of big wooden double doors flanked by two columns topped with winged gargoyles shaped like boars.[1]


In 1991, Quirinus Quirrell Transfigured one of the gargoyles to attack Harry Potter. Harry, however, managed to defeat it.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The Gargoyle Gate bears a resemblance to the Entrance Gates, but they are different structures.
