“It is located to the east of Saranda, in its dominant part, with dimensions 37.4 x24 m that ends on the east side with a semi-circular apse. The church consists of ours and narthex, the latter being slightly longer than the width of the church. Naosi has longer sides north and south. Inside the church there are two columns of columns showing that we are dealing with a basilica of three nests. To the east of the longitudinal walls there is a tower. The church’s iconostasis consists of a row of columns over the capitals of which a fancy lintel passes, while the lower part of them is decorated with tiles.

The side walls of the church have two-row windows, built on a regular basis with little work stones connected with lime mortar. The church belongs to the XVI century, but has been rebuilt, continuing to be used for a long time, the residential outcomes of the area by the same population. Recently, some people have argued that the church was built (mainly underground works) before the spread of Christianity.

The icons and iconostasis of this church were important works esteemed by Byzantine foreign scholars, which delayed its construction before the Ottoman conquest.”
