The current small church of Panagia (Virgin Mary0 at Ayia is built on the side of the great basilica of the 5th century, which was the seat of the Diocese of Cydonia and Vamos. The temple was reconstructed in 10th-11th century, after a disaster probably suffered by the Arabs, and today the roof has collapsed. The aisles are separated by pillars and a semicircular arch was built for the middle aisle end.
