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.

I had a lot of difficulty finding the entrance to the tombs, but I'm glad I found them! It was very interesting and there were a lot of signs in English and German, as well as in Hungarian. If you are a history lover, this is a must!

Reminded us of some of the burial tombs we saw in Turkey. Interesting perspective, nicely developed and presented; reasonable entry fee.

World Heritage site, very well documented. You need some time for it, but the site is very interesting and tells more about the ancient Pécs.

The site is split into three areas-the main site for the tomb (there's really only one that's worth seeing, but it is impressive), a hole in the ground nearby that contains a brick foundation that could be from anything, and what I guess is a museum (that seemed to be what it said on the tourist map), though it has no signs and was closed when I was there on a Saturday (though the door was open on Friday afternoon, but I foolishly saved it for a full day).
