The roof of the church is covered with Byzantine tiles and, in the south side stands majestic bell tower. It is worth noting that the final draft of Arist. Zachos was based on experiences of the same, during the restoration of St Demetrius of Thessaloniki. Aristotle Zachos (1871-1939)was a leading figure of the Greek architecture of the 20th century. studied architecture at the three major southern German Universities, Technical Universities of Munich, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe.
