The Red Church – Perushtitza

The red church of the Virgin Mary is a remnant of a Christian temple – a late antiquity and early medieval basilica from the 4th to the 14th Century in the town of Perushtitsa.

Represents in its highest part a central four-room hall, which in each of the four directions has semi-cylindrical niches, covered with a dome. From the northern and southern sides of the building there have been open-air compartments. In the northern ward there was a pool lined with pink marble that served as thermal baths, and later baptisms of new Christians were performed there. The church was extremely richly decorated, the floor was covered with mosaic, and the walls, lined with some marble slabs, were covered with frescoes.
