Church of St. Agnes


Church of St. Agnes was built in the 5th century AD and belongs to the early-Byzantine architectural period (also known as Ostrogothic early Byzantine period). Archaeological research uncovered it was built on the remains of a smaller mausoleum from the 2nd century, and that the church first served as an early Christian mausoleum before it assumed the function of a burial chapel.

This assumption was confirmed by a number of graves found in its vicinity. The Church of St. Agnes was a smaller building with four buttresses on the eastern side, a staircase constructed of stone blocks on the western side, a circular wall on the northern side and one on the southern side. It is presumed the latter was destroyed in the Second World War during the construction of a storage bunker at that location.

The remains of the church were uncovered in 2005 and were conserved according to standard procedure.
