To the west - where originally there was the facade and entrance- was built a new polygonal apse and two side chapels that delimit a transept never existed.

During the restoration works, in the phase of the excavation of the ancient apse was found a piece of good jewelry, bronze and enamel, depicting the Crucifixion, now at the Diocesan Museum of Susa and further surveys have revealed a part of the fresco in the triumphal arch, considered by the experts as perhaps the oldest existing in the valley.
