Jeradeh

The modern settlement of Jeradeh has developed to the side of the ancient village, meaning that in the 1990s the site had not been plundered for stone . The C5th church is heavily overgrown and the foliage makes it difficult to see all the church interior.

Ruweiha Church of Bizzos

The C6th Church in Ruweiha is known by the name of its patron Bizzos. It is an exceptionally large building that has a wide arch span facilitated by the use of piers springing from cross-shaped bases, rather than the more usual arrangement of columns and capitals. In the 1990s it was well preserved, but several families lived in houses in the ruins of the structure. The mausoleum of the patron lies on the edge of the church compound.

Ruweiha C5th church

Ruweiha is unusual for being the only village that had two churches with a bema, however in this case the nave-platform seems to have been dismantled when the church was superseded by a new, larger church in the village. Only the south and east sides of the building are still extant, but these survive in good condition and show that this was a substantial church, even if the later building in the village was even more impressive.

Church, Al Bara

This C6th church is unusual for having a nave that is almost transverse. Although this type of floorpan is a known element of churches in the Tur Abdin region of south eastern Turkey, it is very unusual to find this design this far south.

Sergilla

The town of Sergilla on Jebel Zawiyeh is one of the most famous settlements on the Limestone Massif due to the exceptional state of preservation of the buildings (in many cases only the roofs are missing) and because of the number of civic buildings, such as the bath house and andron, still extant.
