The entire apse remains, with part of the nave walls surmounted in places by sculpted corbels, giving the whole structure a Romanesque appearance. The Gothic vaulting and three chapels near the choir date from the 16th century.

    The interior features thirteen carved shields and forty painted shields bearing the arms of the Soudeilles du Lieuteret, Ventadour and Famille de France families. The walls are decorated with three "liters" - black stripes painted to mark the death of a Lord or King - which are rare in this day and age.
    The oratory (Oradour, Limousin) houses a 16th-century polychrome limestone cross, listed as a Monument Historique, with one side depicting the crucifixion and the other the glorification of the Virgin.
