Building with a basilica layout with three naves and chevet with three apses, built with characteristic red stone. The central nave is covered with a pointed barrel vault, and the sides by quarter circle vaults. On the eastern side, there are three primitive apses, decorated with Lombard motifs, twin columns and capitals. The only pieces of value that are housed inside are a baptism font and the capitals, all decorated with Corinthian features except for a couple of them, which show mythological elements.
