Early christian necropolis of Pécs (Sopianae)

Short description:

The early Christian cemetery of Pécs, from the 4th century, is a comprehensive example of the burial architecture and art of early Christians in the northern and western provinces of Rome. The underground burial chambers and the memorial chapels attest the persistence and faith of the Christian communities living in Europe in the late Roman period, while they also depict the roots of a culture and a civilization which is still alive.
