The door shows the lintel, the columns, the band and the feet decorated with borders. The date of 1701 is engraved on the lintel. The wall bell tower with a single hole stands at the top of the west facade. The apse, on a higher level than the nave, is presided by an 18th-century baroque altarpiece dedicated to St Stephen.
