The small arboretum can be found in the other direction from Tettye square, where a bank clerk, János Pintér started to plant rare flora in a Roman quarry in 1920.
Heading eastward from Mandulás we reach the new Zoo. After half a century it is undergoing a total overhaul.
It is known as one of the most beautiful buildings of Modern Hungarian architecture.
Tettye and the Mecsek
It is worth going walking around Tettye as the slopes under Misina are quite friendly.

Crucifix of Havihegy
The creation of György Kiss, who produced three works of art simultaneously.
It is the compass of Pécs, its tower indicating directions. The Havas Boldogasszony-chapel on Havihegy is a determinative point of the southern slopes of the Mecsek.
The former pioneer railway survived the change in regime.
The gateway to the Mecsek. If we were to approach the hills from the city centre, via the Pálos Temple, then this gateway would indicate the border between the city and the Mecsek.
For those who venture even higher, the Lapis – Tubes – Mandulás tourist route is a must for hikers, but it is also a fine path for ramblers.
The first crucifix of Havi-hegy was erected in 1745. Allegedly it commemorates a clergyman who plunged to the depths, dying of a broken heart.. Incidentally, the legend has no basis at all.
