Church of Saints Cosmas and Damianus

Built between 529 and 533 AD. This church features a remarkable mosaic floor depicting wonderful animal and human images. The mosaic remains in excellent condition, which is rare given the iconoclasm that destroyed images in churches across the region. This mosaic most likely survived as it was abandoned during the 7th century.
