A notice indicates this is the "necropolis church". It is built in the late 5th century on the site of an earlier structure. It supposedly preserves traces of a "Peacable Kingdom" in front of its apse, as well as a number of burial sites in the floor. Inside the church the foundations of a chapel are also visible, that was built there after the church lost its use.
