Havihegy Chapel

Havihegy Chapel
7625 Pécs, Havihegyi út 7.

Main attractions of the Southern slopes of the Mecsek are Misina with the TV-tower and the Boldogasszony-chapel on Havihegy. The chapel was built above the town in Baroque style to commemorate the plague of 1690. The residents of Pécs vowed to bring the materials up to the hill and they did so. In 1710 the sanctuary was expanded. In August 1780 the interior of the church burnt out. It was restored with new furniture. The single-nave chapel has wagon-roof. Its organ-loft is near the entrance. The exterior's austerity does good to the church as the building co-exists with the landscape, complementing each other. The main alter of the chapel was made from marble. The altar-piece shows the Virgin Mary. On the two side-altars you can see St. Sebastian and St. Florian.
