Declared an UNESCO Heritage site, the Early Christian cemetery of Sopianae is a must-see when in Pécs! An incredible amount of planning and construction took place to preserve this 1600 year old history. Great care has been taken to make the visitor's experience a worthwhile and educational one. A major plus for this attraction is that it is fabulously wheel-chair... More

Sopinae cemetry is located right down the Cathedral. You have to look carefully to find it in a park. Outside you will see Roman ruins and stairs are leading to the underworld. If you want to make pcs you have to pay around 1 EUR.

This is the other part of the ancient cemeteries that tourists can visit. If I had to choose between this and the Cella Septichora I'd choose this.

Well worth a visit. The museum attractively show cases the elaborate and unique ancient underground burial spaces. Before you enter the underground walk, check out the layout model in a display in the lobby area. The layout underground is confusing and hard to understand without this overview.
