Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Great value ticket gives admission to several sites across Pecs. The remains are presented in an imaginative way which makes them interesting even for the casual visitor. Also the very cool in the summer heat!

“Must visit”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We enjoyed visiting this place - understanding the history and developments of the country and how the religion were involved in those days. The paintings in the tomb were preserved in original condition - amazing!

“Well preserved history from Roman Times”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The tombs are well preserved and present a view of history form Roman times. We had a guided tour but signs were available in English for all areas. It was nice not to have big crowds and the time ot explore at your own pace.
