Behind the side chapels, the nave is extended by a straight wall of the same width, terminating in a presbytery. There is a sacristy at the back. The interior of the church is spacious and simple, with a ceiling of intersecting cylindrical vaulting, surrounded by a moulded cornice at the bottom. The interior is distinguished by the electric altarpieces and the wide organ choir, which projects forward in the middle. The pulpit above the lectern is decorated with rock ornaments.
