It is a single nave church built of stone with semi-circular holy altar and many
western European characteristics like the Gothic arches in its openings.
Its building must have started well before 1877. According to a marble plate embedded
in a wall, the master mason Hadji Pavlis who was supervising its building, fell off the
top of the belfry on 31st September 1877 and was killed. Tradition has it that he is
buried where he fell.
