The Church has small dimensions and an opulent interior of the baroque style, rich with paintings, stuccoes, notches and gilding. Has a basilica plan with a nave apse. On each side there are three chapels, all featuring frontals in polychrome inlays in scagliola. In the second chapel on the left is hosted the painting Santa Lucia between Our Lady and Saint Catherine, attributed to Guido Reni. In the apse there are five large paintings depicting the Martyrdom of Santa Lucia, works on the design of vicentino Pasqualino Rossi.
