Its interior decorations are made up of frescoes and carved woodwork. The inscription engraved on a stone slab dates the construction of the church to 1776 by Master Ilia Kristo. The church’s wall paintings were created in 1808 by the painter Terpo Zografi, son of Konstandin Zograf, a painter of frescoes and icons from Mokra of Korça. The church’s iconostasis and wood engravings were crafted artistically under the direction of Dhimitri, the Albanian master from Konica.
