Baroque Pavilion

History

The two-storey, octagon shaped pavilion with a pointed curb-roof standing next to the western city wall was first mentioned in a historical source in 1818.

We do not know the exact date of its construction, but it is around 200 years old. The Classicist, later Baroque style building was in line with the fashion of the small architecture of the time, in its own way it is one of the gems of Pécs. Its most beautiful part is the Ionic portal at the gate, sculpted from Budafa gritstone. It was known as a clubhouse for a time, and with its garden from the 1820s has provided relaxation for the local population for two centuries. The inner garden of the city wall promenade is an example of several fastidiously designed, Baroque style parks with fountains, statues and pavilions established by the clerical and wealthy lay citizenry of Pécs.


The Pavilion can be viewed during the opening hours of the park of the Western City Wall Promenade (from autumn to spring Mon-Fri 8:00-18:00), from spring to autumn daily from 8:00 to 01:00 (until Neozin Grill Terrace closes).
