Wooden Church in Krzemienica

Most of the current Podkarpackie was inhabited by Greek Catholic Ruthenians a century ago, who left many beautiful monuments here. Thus, comprehensive Roman Catholic religious complexes remain rare. The temple in Krzemienica was built in 1492 and was rebuilt and expanded after a fire in 1750. It is now a three-part church with a vestibule, a large main nave crowned with a slender turret, and a chancel with an adjoining sacristy. The building is oriented, and the main nave is divided so that there are three apparent aisles. The interior is richly decorated, with a breathtaking Rococo main altar, side altars, and pulpit. The interior has recently undergone conservation treatments, showcasing its full glory and splendour of the late Baroque.
