The church surprises by the beauty of its 18th century façade, its bell tower covered by a copper dome and its fully painted interior. The façade is of 1736, pure classical style. The bell tower, octagonal, is of 1852, work of the Bordeaux architect Pierre-Paul Courau. The construction of the great organ Bernard Cogez (name of the organ builder who designed it) marks an additional interest. The stained glass windows were made by Joseph Villet, master glassmaker from Bordeaux from 1861 to 1868.
