A small basilica located outside the walls of the ancient Greek city of Akragas, at the foot of the so-called Temple of Juno, on the eastern slopes of the Hill of the Temples, in an area previously occupied by the necropolis of the late Roman period.

The basilica was most likely built in the fourth century A.D. It has an entrance to the east and a single nave and a semicircular apse. In the floor of the nave two tombs are visible, possibly belonging to the martyrs Libertino and Peregrino.
