Rectangular in plan and oriented east-west, it has a large central nave with three bays, side chapels and a choir with a flat chevet. It has polychrome wooden sculptures and 17th century paintings attributed to Vento, Puppo and Ferrari, who painted the canvases for the Basilica of Saint Michael in Menton, which was built shortly before.
