The Portal is a block added in the 2.0 Update. Portals allow you to travel from one place to another fast. If you place a portal in one place and another in a second place with the same color, they will link.


  • If you look closely at the side of any portal, you can see that the texture (excluding the portal part) is just 2 stone blocks stacked on top of each other.
  • Creatures can go through portals.
  • Portals are 2 blocks tall and 1 block wide.
  • If you hold the screen before placing a portal, the placing icon is that of a normal stone block, rather than a portal
  • Portals originally couldn't go through loading screens and still can't on some devices.
