Pecs Cathedral, Pecs

4.8
Join a tour of Pecs Cathedral and admire the stunning collection of Romanesque sculpture and carvings. A church has stood on the site since the Roman Empire, but it was King Stephan I that founded this cathedral. During the tour, lights illuminate the marble statuary and intricately decorated walls and ceiling that feature gilded details. You'll also have the chance to admire the impressive organ, and hear it played. The tour guide will meet you just outside the cathedral gates in the morning or afternoon. Before you head to Pecs, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Pecs trip builder site, to make sure you see all that Pecs has to offer, including Pecs Cathedral.

  • What an amazing place. The church is fantastic and the climb to the top of the tower is worth it. When you are finished, go to the cafe and sit outside where you can admire the church while you drink....  more »

  • Am not religious, but this is a significant RC cathedral. Spacious and impressive interior of iconic pictures etc. A definite visit if you are in the area. You can visit under the building and climb the tower. Sadly, due to time constraints, we were on a tour, and could only do the ground floor. Tie in with a visit to the square and the old mosque.
  • This is very beautiful. Try to be there when the organ is played. The interior is very beautiful.
  • The scale and beauty of it went over my expectations, recommend to see if In Town.
  • A well preserved cathedral, climb the tower great views of Pecs.
  • It's very nice and well structured and I love it #tradition🤘
