It has a unique wooden Mudejar roof inside due to its significant polychrome decoration. The baroque covering that masks its original architecture is also of great quality and beauty. The nave of the church is currently covered with a barrel vault with lunettes decorated in its entirety with sgraffito in which a very rich iconographic program is developed. The Baroque period complex is completed by a high choir covered by a lowered oval dome on pendentives, an organ dated 1791 and a Mudejar-inspired bell tower.
