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.
