It is a cross - inscribed two columned church with cupola. The multiple
repairs during the 18th and 19th century in the cross' s side arms, have altered
the form of the monument: today it is a three aisled cross vault basilica, with
a semi - circular apse.
Countless early christian and middle byzantine capitals, architraves etc. have been walled up in the church' s masonry.
The most important piece of frescoe, depicting the Communion of St Mary the Egyptian by Zosimas, is on the northwestern part of the church and dated in the 13th century.
The church is from time to time repaired. It is a place of worship.
