The Christian basilica

Lixus, Morocco

Lixus, Morocco

Strangely unimpressive, the Christian basilica right in the centre of Lixus, belongs to the period of decline for Lixus. It must have been clear to its builders and users to what degree artistic and engineering skills were lost in the past.
It is small, primitive and unadorned, and you can easily climb to the top of its roof.
