View of the grotto of the Church of Saint John (the Baptist).  Note the variety of icons.

The church is located on the southern slope of the citadel at Samaria.  A late Christian tradition associates the finding of John the Baptist's Head with Sebaste.

The church was originally built in the sixth century AD and was rebuilt in the eleventh.
