It's a small rectangular room with apse semi circular. The walls are wide, and covered with ivy which tries to take the mortar away from the pebbles. There's no roof anymore. Probably the room was covered with the typical hut roof, as the facade let us intend. The apse was covered by beams in radial layout (but this is not considered the original roofing. At the moment there's no sign of fresco's, but there have been at least untill 1954 (Cazzani).
