We were a bit unsure of going inside the cathedral but as it was free we dropped in for look and didn't regret it. The decorations are very beautiful. There is also a very impressive organ which struck up with a rendition of Ave Maria. The information however is limited so if you are interested in the history then it... More

Of all my memories of the Cathedral - the four towers, the roof, the extraordinary gate, the gorgeous coffered ceiling, the lower level with the wooden carvings on the steps down - the one I treasure most is of the magic moment when the organ suddenly started playing, and even a group of schoolchildren were quiet.

We spent 3 night in pecs and visiting the cathedral and it's surrounding sites was the best part of our trip. The entire area screams out history. There is a number of locations you ought to visit but the centuries old cathedral is sure to catch your attention. Try to take a padlock with you along with your loved one,... More

This Cathedral is somewhat different than other. Yes pews Altar etc But the wall of this Cathedral and the pillars are somewhat unique. It looks like that the Cathedral got a wallpaper all over it but I could not figure out if it wallpaper or hand painted pattern. The pillars had gold and white and looking like brick on top... More

The cathedral dominates one end of town, and it's definitely worth a visit. Don't miss the crypt, which holds interesting mosaics and other religious artistry.

Take your time to explore the Cathedral and surrounds, The cathedral is big, ceilings and walls have intricate art work. The Early Christian Museum is within the surrounds housing the Cella Septichora, the medieval gate tower and wall sounds the whole cathedral precinct, The area with its 4th Century Christain Necropolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site

We were informed of the catholic faith, the practise with wonderful artistic sculptures, metal works to admire. On one hand, I admired the time, money and effort put in those times. Our guide was informative maintaining the facts as they are.
