The church has undergone various changes throughout the years. During the Turkish Occupation period, it used to be a mosque, and then it underwent reconstruction after being destroyed by an earthquake in 1856. Later on, its minaret was finally removed in 1920, and since its final reconstruction in 1925, it has served as a Christian church.

The architectural style of the church consists of a mix of Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman influences. On the inside, you will see traditional religious relics, murals, and icons depicting Christian and biblical themes.
