The church has a portal in front fascia with richly carved. The facade is located on the way inside, covered by both the outdoor porch that houses built in later periods over the porch itself.
The most characteristic part of the exterior of the church is the back, facing the sea, which has three small semicircular apses protruding, whose shape resembles the back of the church of Vallisa in Bari. Other similarities exist between All Saints and the church in Bari as the presence of the front porch, the proximity to the sea, the construction period and the presence of the community of Ravello (the church is also known as the Vallisa Raveddise or of Ravello).
The interior of the structure is rectangular, divided into three naves with a double portico, using columns sorreggo arches. The nave is covered with trusses, while the aisles are covered by vaults. The structure does not have the transept.
The columns supporting the nave are in African granite, the same material used for two external columns, with capitals of composite type.
The aisles are accessed by three rectangular doors, all surmounted by lunettes with valuable decorations: although the bezel door right is too deteriorated, in that the main door and to the left respectively recognize the scene of the Annunciation and the image of two peacocks in the act of eating with a vine, symbol of the sacrament of the Eucharist.
The church houses several artistic paintings including a Madonna and Child with Byzantine influence of the sixteenth century, the work of the pavement artist Rico from Candia.
