The center displays remarkable work of architecture and excellent work of craftsmanship. It was built in a neo-gothic style and has several pivoted arches which lead to the altar. The altar itself is centrally placed in the church and makes a complete rotation every 10 minutes. A pipe organ is fitted to the right wing of the church, close to which sits the choir. Stained glass windows which employ a simple but attractive mix of yellow, green and red colors can be seen all around the church.
