Thare are nae traces o this kirk the day acause in the 15t century radical chynges an restoration wur carriet oot. It wis durin thir chynges that the lavish decorations that we see the day wur addit. The kirk haes a main, central nave wi side aisles on aither side. The chancel an heich altar is at ane end o the nave facin the main doors that are at the ither end. The side aisles are lined wi richly decoratit chapels. The facade is baroque but the slopin ruif is a sign o its medieval oreegins.
