The stone church, built in 1882-1884, is very special, because its trunnion cross is covered with a big central cupola. It is a mixture of Romantic and Byzantine style. Next to the church there is high stone bell tower, built approximately in 1876. The church was consecrated in 1898.
In the front façade two statues flanking the entrance, and in the tympanum is a relief:
