The façade is typical of the Baroque period and has a medallion of the "Martyrdom of Saint John in the bathtub".

It has a square Baroque tower with a height of 42 metres and 114 steps up to the bell room. The decoration of the top is classical and the pilasters on each side of the semicircular arches are in the Doric style. The interior is in neoclassical style with three naves and the transept is very bright.
Regarding the paintings that decorate the interior of the church, in the spandrels of the arches are painted the Apostles and Saints, these paintings were made by D. Juan Celda de la Visitación.
The parish church also has a rich pictorial iconography: the four parts of the world are represented in the dome on the pendentives.
