The Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos, or simply Saint Mary’s Church, is a Greek orthodox church in the village Labova e Kryqit. The original church dates back to the 6th century, when the area was ruled by emperor Justinian, who erected the church in memory of his mother. The current building is thought to date back to somewhere between the 10th and 13th century and is in a well preserved state.
The dome shaped church is the main attraction of the village, which belongs to a group of settlements of the Drino valley river. Labova e Kryqit is positioned into the northern slope of the Bureto mountain, which raises like a theater behind the village. In the nearby village Peshkëpe there is another Saint Mary’s Church with a similar architecture.
