The Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul on Dome Square is one of the symbols of Pécs, and still emanates a medieval atmosphere. Don’t be surprised when you simply can’t get enough of the magnificent view of the basilica. If you happen to be able to break free of the magnetic pull of this majestic structure, be sure to walk inside the enormous inner space divided by a triumphal arch. There’s only one thing that is even more special: the panorama from the cathedral’s tower.
Underground ruins with stories to tell
Not far from the cathedral, you will find the early Christian necropolis, the burial place of the early Christian town dwellers. It has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2000, and though there are ongoing excavations, the general public can visit several parts today. Walking among the tombs, tomb chapels and the cemetery buildings under the ground, you get a vivid picture of religious habits of early Christians in the Roman Empire.
