- "There is a secret passage in the throne room that leads to Sanctuary."
- — Princess Zelda
The Secret Passage is a location from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It is a hidden tunnel leading through the sewers underneath Hyrule Castle. At the beginning of the game, Princess Zelda is locked by Agahnim in a prison cell deep within the castle. She telepathically contacts Link and asks him to save her. Once he locates her inside the palace, they travel through the secret passage, located behind the King's throne in the Throne Room, to a remote Sanctuary. There, Link leaves Princess Zelda in the care of the Loyal Sage while he sets out to acquire the Pendants of Virtue and the Master Sword.
