The construction of the current church dates from the 13th century, and includes both Romanesque and Gothic elements. There are three naves, a transept and three apses in the sanctuary. The central nave is crowned with a half-barrel vault, and the side naves with a quarter sphere vault. The rose window is the most notable feature of the façade. On the exterior the apses are decorated with Lombard arches.
