The town was planned according to the Roman urban typology of the 1st century BC, and was an important administrative and cultural centre. The archaeological site of Doclea/Duklja comprises Roman monuments and two necropolises, two early Christian three-nave churches from the 5th and 6th century AD, and a smaller cross-formed church from the 9th century.
