Its exterior stands out for its bright colors, its façade is painted in blue, white, and red, and it has two eye-catching stars. In its interior it is possible to observe the light blue vaulted ceiling. It is 42 meters long by 14 wide, and its 26-meter-high tower are built mainly in cypress, mañio, cinnamon, and hazel. Its exterior cladding has experienced some changes, such as that of 1920 concerning the incorporation of metal standing seams in some areas.
