These elements can be seen in the pilasters delimiting the width of the facade supporting a peculiar trabeation with a smooth frieze surmounted by a cornice and and arched tympanum terminating in straight lines. The portal is simple and linear in design, made of nenfro and surmounted by a square window. The chapel is no longer used for religious services but is utilized as a catechism school and for other church activities related to the parishes of S. Giovanni Gerosolimitano and S. Leonardo.
