Its limestone and marble choir develops in three parts: a central panel and two concave wings.

In 1876, the church was renewed, redoing the walls of the outline and the roof, without touching the main nave. All that remains is to replace its bell tower and its slate spire with a tower and a stone pyramid.

The altars of the church are dedicated to the Rosary, to St Isidore, to St Joseph and to the Sacred Heart. A large part of the building, in particular the nave and its framework, dates from the 16C. In the large niches you can see the statues of Sainte Barbara and Saint Eloi which seem contemporary, while in the upper niche the statue of Saint Ouen is older.
