This intriguing roman - catholic church is located in lesser poland in a little town called Lipnica Murowana, and is of solid wood log construction.

 The temple is included in a unesco world heritage list, wooden architecture of Poland - list  and consists of a nave and presbytery sharing one roof covered with wood shingles.

The wood shingles also covers the side external walkway/gallery and walls below them.- excluding the west side with is cladded with wood boards.Very characteristic architectural element for simple churches like these were little bell towers at the top of roof. - here,covered with well.

There are three copies of original gothic oltars in the church and a fantastic paintings of the walls and ceiling from the period.The surrounding  graveyard ads  the element  of romantism and magic.



  1. Tiene un estilo muy fino y sobre todo al ser toda de estructura de madera le da un aspecto mucho mas cálido y bonito.
    Un abrazo

  2. Your church reminds me very much of Poland's timber synagogues, in both design and construction techniques. The timber must have been plentiful, but I wonder about the risks of fire.

  3. guauuuuuuuuuu que maravilla tiene que ser una gozada vivir hay
