Overview

Sopianae, predecessor of Pécs in the Roman times had its late Roman Paleochristian cemetery included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in the year 2000. In their architecture and wall-paintings the excavated finds present the Early Christian burial architecture and art of the Northern and Western provinces of the Roman Empire. From among the Hungarian world heritage sites the Early Christian cemetery is the only one that has won itself a place on the UNESCO world heritage list in the category of culture-historical architecture.

Early Christian Mausoleum has a collection of well-preserved tombs. The walkways are well designed so visitors can get an optimal perspective of the tombs. Being able to look at the murals from underneath some of the tombs was especially impressive.

Consider how old these paintings are and you will be amazed! Interesting circular entry stairs. Adam and Eve painted on the chamber wall are superb.

Take time to carefully examine all of the paintings on the tomb. TIP- make sure to park in a paid parking lot outside the old city. The parking nearby is not signed as permit only. 😔 Parking there will get you a 16€ fine.

This is an exceptionally well preserved site of an early Christian (400 AD & 1200 AD) burial chambers + mausoleum. The graves with the sarcophagi are shown behind glass, with the chanbers painted in the typical Roman style. The buildings have been helpfully 3D reconstructed...More

Early Christian catacombs, very educative tourist route with lots of information. You could feel the ambience of the old days while crossing the place.
