This cultural property holds a crypt which one can reach through a pair of staircases and a rectangular mausoleum, built on a steep stone base that can also be reached through pair of staircases.

The mausoleum itself is decorated with architectural elements resembling the Ancient Egyptian style (columns, capitals, bases, architraves, cornices, entrances and dome). The interior holds the same style which has been entirely painted with vividly colored Egyptian and Christian motifs in fresco technique. Inside the mausoleum there is an altar and a bust of Jesus Christ in white marble.
