The educational path, which runs between the church and the hut at the foot of the Tenkes hilltop, is approximately 2.5 kilometres long. When reaching the end, it is well worth climbing up the hill ridge and then walking down the paths marked with a yellow cross or red stripe to Máriagyűd.

Templom-hegy (Church Hill) Ammonites educational path

The educational path was established in the old quarry of Villány’s Templom-hegy. Leaving Villány in the direction of Villánykövesd, 500 metres after the railway station and turning left before the rail crossing we find the – not very smooth – car parking place at the foot of the hill.
