The building, rebuilt in 1682-1685, has a centred plan with a dome illuminated by a lantern.
The inside is remarkable for its wall paintings and altarpieces .


Inside, the church has received a scenery of very interesting wall paintings. The dome is divided into eight vaults decorated with medallions representing the apostles.
