Architecture

The church originally consisted of a rectangular nave, a rectangular chancel east of the nave and a tower originally located on the northern side of the presbytery. From the south, the entrance to the nave is preceded by a porch. Narrow, ogival windows with finials in the form of trefoils were renovated in the nineteenth century.
