The wooden church, one of Poland's oldest, dating back to the second half of the 15th century, has found itself among a group of historic monuments on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The church features the wooden-frame construction characteristic of the architecture of Polish highlanders, with shingled roofs on the church and tower.
The walls of the tower are timbered and decorated with "gingerbread," also typical for the Podhale region.

The temple's interior has preserved unique historic monuments of wooden architecture: 15th-16th-century paintings on the ceiling and walls, a priceless triptych altar, exemplifying old Polish wood painting dating back to the beginning of the 16th century
, and archaic elements of decoration such as a wooden painted tabernacle and a Gothic tower-shaped monstrance.
