On the sides of the door there are two small square openings and a round window in the door. The church has a gabled roof and has a small bell tower with one bell.

The interior is a single room with a wooden gable roof and the background facade has an altar in different coloured marble with a Renaissance style painting of a breastfeeding Madonna. The sides of the painting and the other walls are also decorated with frescoes.
