Holy Trinity Church and Basilian Gate are situated at Ausros vartu 7b. You can see the Holy Trinity Church when you walk through the gate. There is a courtyard there.
The church is presently under going a total restoration. The neglect obviously dates back decades. Though it is sad to behold, there is still something about being inside that evokes spirituality.

When visiting they were very busy restoring the outside of the Church. Hope that they will move inside as well. Very dilapidated and in need of repair. It was actually good to see this in contract to the other Churches in the old town.

Located somewhat off the street in an old neighbourhood. One walks through the gate (which is located on the street) to get to the church and monstery. It was a disappointment to me because the church was closed (and should have been open). Outside is nice, but not spectacular, compared to some other churches in Vilnius
You can't miss this gate. If you walk in the old town you will find the gate in front of you eventually. The church is old and unmaintained so if you don't visit it, it's ok! You don't miss anything.
I was not impressed by the church although it is an old one, but the gate was nice to see and photograph. The whole visit can be for about 15 minutes.
