The Basilisk Gate was a gate and local landmark in Baldur's Gate, situated in the outer city wall, that separated the Lower City district of Eastway from the Outer City district of Stonyeyes.[1][2]

The gate acted as the eastern passageway in and out of the city along the Coast Way, which passed through the Outer City and eventually connected to the Lands of Intrigue.[1][2]

Description[edit | edit source]

Basilisk Gate was distinctive in that it was lined with a number of statues,[1][2] particularly those of prominent deceased patriar. After an effigy of Entar Silvershield was placed above the gate, it became traditional to honor prominent Baldurians past and present in this manner. This practice continued until the late–15th century DR.[3]
