Long Description:

"The building has a Latin cross plan: It is entered through a bell tower-porch, its nave has three naves and four bays, its transept is projecting, and its apse has three sides. It is oriented and has a quadrangular building to the south-east of the transept, certainly the sacristy.

The western facade has four levels of elevation and is framed by two stepped buttresses. The first level has a quadrangular portal open under a broken arch, which releases a tympanum pierced by a trilobed oculus.

The portal is surrounded by two lancet bays pierced with broken arches. The second level of elevation is pierced by two openings in pointed arches, separated by a plinth and a statue of a Virgin and Child. The third level of elevation has two niches, perhaps they contained statues. Finally the fourth level of elevation is that of louvered bays.

The nave, for its part, has a single level of elevation pierced with pointed arch bays without tracery, alternating with stepped buttresses.

The arms of the transept have two levels of elevation. The first presents three openings in lancets pierced in pointed arches, they are surmounted by a niche, certainly containing a statue. The chevet, provided with a single level of elevation, presents openings pierced in broken arches alternating with buttresses with cusps. Finally, the sacristy has a square opening with two lancets.

The nave and the arms of the transept are covered with pitched roofs. The chevet is covered with a regular apse roof. The sacristy is covered with a one-sided roof."

" L'édifice accuse un plan en croix latine : On y pénètre par une tour clocher-porche, sa nef possède trois vaisseaux et quatre travées, son transept est saillant, et son chevet a trois pans. Elle est orientée et présente au sud-est du transept un bâtiment quadrangulaire, certainement la sacristie.

La façade occidentale présente quatre niveaux d'élévation et est encadrée par deux contreforts à redents. Le premier niveau présente un portail quadrangulaire ouvert sous un arc brisé, ce qui dégage un tympan percé d'un oculus trilobé.

Le portail est entouré de deux baies en lancettes percé en arcs brisés. Le second niveau d'élévation est percé de deux baies en lancettes en arc brisés, séparées par un socle et une statue d'une Vierge à l'Enfance. Le troisième niveau d'élévation présente deux niches, peut-être contenaient-elles des statues. Enfin le quatrième niveau d'élévation est celui des baies à abat-sons.

La nef, quant à elle, présente un seul niveau d'élévation percé de baies en arc brisé sans remplage, en alternance avec des contreforts à redents.

Les bras du transept possèdent deux niveaux d'élévation. Le premier présente trois baies en lancettes percées en arcs brisés, ils sont surmontés d'une niche, renfermant certainement une statue. Le chevet, pourvu d'un seul niveau d'élévation, présente des baies percées en arcs brisés alternant avec des contreforts à redents. Enfin, la sacristie présente une ouverture carrée à deux lancettes.

La nef et les bras du transept sont couverts de toits à pans. Le chevet est couvert d'un toit en abside régulière. La sacristie est couverte d'un toit a un pan. "
