The Wooden Church - Sanctuary of St James the Elder the Apostle in Szczyrk


The Church of Saint James the Apostle is the oldest shrine in Szczyrk. It was built between 1797 and 1800, on the main road to Bielsko. It is a wooden log cabin construction, covered with shingles. The tower is crowned with a distinctive tent-roof over the upper chamber. The interior is baroque and comes primarily from the liquidated Norbertine abbey church in Nowy Sącz.
