They built it with stone blocks from local limestone while the roof is covered with stone shales. A new door and two rectangular front windows were erected in 1601, as it can be seen from the inscription above the entrance. The church is painted with frescoes and similar ones can be seen in Carniola, in neighbouring Slovenia. The frescoes represent scenes from the life of Christ: its childhood, escape to Egypt, fall of the Egyptian idols, slaughter of innocent children, return of the Holy Family from Egypt, Baptism in Jordan, expulsion of merchants from the temple, Last Supper, Christ on the Mount of Olives, Judas kiss, Christ before Pilate, Christ’s Resurrection, holy women next to an empty tomb, Christ appears to his eleven disciples, doubting Thomas, Ascension to Heaven. The ideas for these frescoes come from Biblia pauperum – Bible for the poor dating back to the Middle Ages, dominated by illustrations, sometimes accompanied by short explanations. Some paintings are the only displays in the entire corpus of preserved Istrian frescoes, such as Judas kiss, containing a beautiful depiction of St. Peter, who is one of the greatest characters in Istrian wall painting. The frescoes were restored in the 70s of the 20th century and in order to see them one must enter through the main Parish Church of St. Michael.
