Archaeological locality "Na Díle"

The uncovered foundations of the church, discovered in 1911, are the subject of controversy among historians. Some believe that the church was built during the Iro-Scottish missions, before the arrival of Cyril and Methodius in the first half of the 9th century. The other part considers it to be a church of the Cyril and Methodius period. The hypothetical form is represented by the reconstruction of the entire church building standing next to it.

The site of the national cultural monument is located on an elevation belonging to the foothills of the Chřiby Mountains, about 4 km northwest of Staré Město, near the village of Modrá, along the trade route that used to connect Central Moravia with the Vyškov region.
