Early Christian Mausoleum

Opening time

Closing time

It was found not so long ago, in 1975, and became the first underground mausoleum open to visitors. The cemetery chapel is one of the biggest ever to be found in Hungary and according to coins found here it was built in the second half of the fourth century. A painted chamber was found with the remains of three marble sarcophagi. One sculpted, figurative sarcophagus could be reconstructed from the fragments. The wall paintings depict biblical scenes: Daniel in the lion’s den and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Both are unique representations in Pannonia. The Christogram, symbol of the World Heritage of Pécs, can also be found here, above the Eucharist alcove.
