Zsolnay Mausoleum

Here forty-two eosin lions guard the secret of eosin manufacturing. The mausoleum can now be viewed in its original splendour. Vilmos Zsolnay (1828-1900) was temporarily buried in the cemetery of the Buda suburb of Pécs as his family meant to give him a monument matching his greatness. His mausoleum was erected on a small hill behind the Zsolnay Factory. Zsolnay liked to sit on this hill and observe the factory from here. The circular-based, pyrogranite covered, Neo-Roman style mausoleum was erected in 1906 according to the plans of Zsolnay’s son-in-law, architect Tádé Sikorski. The reburial took place in October 1913 under cover of night, with only the family members present. The mausoleum is simply amazing in daylight. In the lower part stands the sarcophagus ornamented with an eosin covered relief. The garden is bordered by a stone wall covered with salt-glazed pyrogranite shapes. 42 recumbent lions guard the two sides of the approach. These – with the exception of two originals – were restored and replaced as part of the ECC project, together with the severely damaged building.
