Primitive Christianity Basilica of Vega del Mar

Read 565 times

V D.C

Vega del Mar Basilica: At possibly more than 1.500 years old, it is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant archaeological manifestations of primitive Christianity. The temple consists of a central body of three naves separated by pillars, with the dominant feature being the existence of two opposing apses, a feature inherent in some North African buildings.  Next to one of them is a very interesting quadrilobulated baptismal font, for the ritual of baptism through immersion.

Associated with the temple there is a necropolis with close to two hundred graves.

Address: A-7, Km. 171. Urb. Linda Vista Playa
