But it’s worth making the effort to go up them, steps for this is a sacred place and has beautiful scenery. The Stations were constructed on the site of the thirteenth-century Corpus Christi Chapel, for Jesuit Order. The single-tower chapel now standing there was built in 1814 and is one of the earliest Classicist circular temples. One of the interesting facts about the Pécs Calvary is that the positioning of the Stations is unusual as they do not follow each other in a diagonal, upward pattern but progress go upwards from the west and than downwards to the east. Another interesting thing is the new terrace, as it is the first example of the use of TioCem, a new type of cement. The concrete cover made from TioCem induces a chemical reaction with sunshine, so making it capable of “catching” contaminated particles of the atmosphere. The new attraction is called the Terrace of Eight Beatitudes. The eight beatitudes are symbolized by the eight “concrete-stamps” laid in the floor of the terrace.
