The Gargoyle Gate was a passage at Hogwarts Castle, connecting the main grounds with a small forest section. The gate was on a small paved courtyard, and it was comprised of big wooden double doors flanked by two columns topped with winged gargoyles shaped like boars.[1] Later, another door was added which leads elsewhere.[2]

History

In 1991, Quirinus Quirrell bewitched one of the gargoyles at this gate to attack Harry Potter. Harry, however, managed to defeat it and render it immobile once more with the Knockback Jinx.[1]

1992

In 1992, Harry and Ronald Weasley ran through here through two different doors to meet outside Rubeus Hagrid's hut.[2]
