The building’s corpus is heavily counterforted with four-step buttresses, between which there are ogival windows with traceries. Particularly large ogival, five-light window decorates the west façade, above the entrance portal. The northern wall of the nave is devoid of windows. The tower is topped with a parapet on corbels and decorative battlement.
