History

The Church dedicated to the Holly Lady is located in Bellopoja village, to the right of Pejë-Deçan road, built in the late 19th century. This Orthodox Church is a reconstruction carried out on the foundations of another religious building from an earlier period. There are no data on archaeological research regarding the old church which would prove the shape, planimetry and typology of the old facility. The present church was built through donations from Peja nobility. The church is enriched by post byzantine frescos as well as relics of religious rites. Within the church, there are also residences and cemeteries.
