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 😊.

The architecture of the crypt was impressive as was the whole history of the cathedral. We spent about an hour wandering around and admiring every part of it so for us it was a truly lovely visit.
