Church of St. George at Evcik

The Church of St. George at Evcik is on the cliff next to the end of Anastasian Wall by the Black Sea. The church perhaps dates to the 10th or 11th century. It has a central plan measuring 7.5 x 6.5 meters with a triple apse, with the northern and southern apses were added at a later date. A cistern was discovered below the narthex. An inscription recording work on the Anastasian Wall during the reign of Heraclius was used in the construction of the church. Below the narthex was a cistern.
