The current form of the church is the result of the combination of two churches - three - aisled with two domes structure. The eastern part of the monument was first built over the ruins of an early Christian basilica and was used as a cruciform church with a dome in the 12th century.

In the 13th century, on the west side was added an extension. This extension included a domed cross-in-square section. In the interior of the monument, the walls are decorated with valuable and beautiful wall-paintings, significant examples of the Byzantine Art of the 12th, 13th, 15th and 16th centuries.

Also, other treasures were found in the church such as portable icons of the 15th and 16th centuries. An important icon found in the church of Panagia Chryseleousa is the icon of Jesus Christ holing a Gospel with his hand.
