St.George’s is a rectangular and stout building whose full extension is only visible from the two side streets along which it is built. The view from the east reveals the elaborate dome and the dynamic of the construction where a large pediment marks the transept area. The opposite side mirrors that pediment and tops the southwest side entrance. The entrance area features a porch enclosed by four massive Doric columns whose bases are sitting directly on low plinths. Their capitals are topped with a plain architrave and frieze, the cornice and pediment are decorated with large dentils. The shafts of the columns are plain and one can see the layers of stone cylinders piled up on one another. These features give the place a sense of entering a temple of God. St.George’s dome is decorated with sixteen Corinthian columns, each separated by an arch and it is topped with a lantern with eight small Corinthian columns, also separated by arches. It dominates the landscape by its imposing classical beauty. A walk to its north side reveals a well-demarked apse with eight stain glass windows. Inside, it's opulence! A visit is well worth your time!
