Geocache Description:

You can find the cache in the garden, in 1.6m height in the vegetation.

Just a few cities can be proud of interior gardens at the very centre that were created by former citizens and preserved in its original beautiful condition. The Western Castle Wall Promenade was also beautified within the framework of the World Heritage Project executed between 2005 and 2006. In the central part of the garden-complex, along the city wall, we can find a two-storey Baroque kiosk with octagonal floor plan and mansard roof that ends in a peak. In our city, this artistic, late Baroque small architecture is one of the most magnificent monuments in its own style. South of the kiosk we can get to the lower terrace through an imposing balustrade where we can admire the panorama of the nearby serpentine streets, roofs and the Mecsek. From the garden, broadening on the northern side of the promenade, and the intimate shadows of the ivy-covered trees there is a clear view of the buildings of the Bishopric of Pécs that evoke Renaissance atmosphere.
The garden, known as Culture Garden, has become sweet home for literary and musical events. It provides space not only for relaxing during the day but also for spending the nights in the cosiest garden-premise of the city.

LOCATION OF THE RELICS OPEN TO VISITORS

The Western Castle Wall Promenade has tree entrances: it can be reached from number 5 Esze Tamás Street, through the courtyard of the Civil Community House (number 17 Saint Stephen’s Square) and walking along the city wall starting from Kafka Restaurant and Club (former Castle Wall Inn, 7624 8 Alkotmány Street, Pécs).
