Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”
~ The phrase that appears on the Gates of Hell.

The Gates of Hell is a gigantic door that is the portal to Hell itself and it is both mentioned in The Divine Comedy by Italian author Dante Aligheiri and featured in the videogame Dante's Inferno.

The gate itself is the physical link between the mortal realm (that is to say the world of the living) and Hell itself. This is the second level of the game, where Dante meets Virgil for the first time and uses an Asterian Beast to open the gates into Limbo. Here he also meets the minor demons and tormented shades of the deceased.


  • Interestingly enough, Charon recites some of these lines.
  • The Gates of Hell in the game are modeled directly off the famous "La Porte de l'Enfer" sculpture by the French artist Auguste Rodin.
