When one of the guards refers to Mithrandir 'knowing the passwords of the Seven Gates', he is refering to Minas Tirith. The highly fortified city has seven levels of walls, and therefore seven gates to bar them. Gandalf knows the passwords for all seven gates, thus allowing him to gain entry to the Gondorian hall of the King, where the Steward of Gondor rules
