A large architectural complex that includes a three-aisled church with a projecting western apse, a small atrium, a baptistery, and other structures built up against the inner face of the western stretch of the city wall of Apollonia.

The site was already mentioned in a 1828 survey, but was excavated only in 1958-9. The many irregularities in the layout suggest the continuous re-use and adaptation of previous architectural elements, from Roman to Late Antique times.
