This is a finished example of fusion between a Basilian-Byzantine presbytery with cupolas and Latin basilicas plan with three apses. The Lancet arches sustain the covering trusses of the central nave by means of high brickwork in which are set the clerestorys windows. The pictures show the principal fašade and the south side, richly decorated with arched lintels a rincassi and interlaced arches.
