The vaste façade from the late-Renaissance, probably attributed to Giacomo della Porta, is divided up by pilaster strips in five spans, with three portals and two niches with statues by Lestache (1758). The interior embodies three naves with five chapels per side and a rich central decorated with marbles; the whole church clearly embodies a baroque style.
