You can look at the whole cathedral without needing to pay. The walls and ceiling inside are so amazing- my photos do not do it justice at all. A must see!

This necropolis is one of the larger ones away from Rome. It is the burial sites of Saints Peter & Paul. and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town, itself, is really nice; for strolling dining and shopping.

A very nice bright and welcoming church, lovely crypt where we heard someone singing, the acoustics were great. We also heard the organ being played. If you limit the number of church visits I would go to this one.

I have toured many churches in Europe. I did not see anything special about this one. If you are short on time, I would suggest you skip this place and find other things that interest you.

Pécs Cathedral admission includes access to its southeast tower which has the best perspective of the mostly flat town of Pécs. The large cathedral has the usual murals and Christian decorations also.

The Pecs cathedral is a landmark, a must for a visit in Pecs. The structure has been remodelled and lavishly redecorated in the 19'th century. The interior is well lighted, letting you admire the paintings and the geometric ornamentation.

Nicely preserved and worth visiting both inside and outside. It is quite a large building with nice architecture and a little park outside.

Interesting wall decor in painted patterns. Generally the atmosphere in the church was a bit dim, not bright at all. The figurines on the walls of the stairs to the crypt show quite some nudity for a catholic church 😊.
