Church of the Virgin Mary

The church and its first mosaic pavement can be dated to between the end of the 6th and the beginning of the 7th centuries. The well-preserved later mosaic was constructed during the Umayyad period when the church was restored.

The church has an internal vestibule, a round nave and an elongated, apsed presbyterium which is supported by two underground rooms with barrel vaults. The facade opens into a narthex and from there, two pairs of columns flank the entrance to the nave of the church which is a circle measuring 9.7 m in diameter.
