In the past, it guarded a passage in the city’s curtain walls. It was also a link between the Christian and Jewish towns, therefore it was often referred to as “the Jewish Gate”. Originally, the structure was quadrilateral-shaped, bore a dome and featured a subsequently added foregate (like the Krakowska Gate). At the end of the 18th century, upon the instruction of the Good Order Committee (Boni Ordinis), it was remodelled in the Neoclassical style and its defensive features were removed. This is commemorated by the date MDCCLXXXV and SAR monogram (Stanislaus Augustus Rex – King Stanisław August) placed on the gate on the side of the Old Town. After 1944, the Gate housed the High School of Fine Arts, and then the Lublin Theatre Studio.

Since 1992 the gate has been housing the Grodzka Gate Centre - NN Theatre. Here, you can see a model of the Jewish district at Podzamcze as it looked before World War II.
