sight entered onto UNESCO World Heritage list UNESCO
The Greek Catholic Parish Church of St. Jacob the Younger in Powroźnik (currently a Roman Catholic Parish Church) was built in 1600 and is therefore the oldest Orthodox Church in the Polish Carpathians. It was repeatedly repaired, and in 1813-14, after a flood, it was moved to its current location. The interior layout is tripartite with square rooms. The walls of the sacristy are covered by precious figurative polychrome from 1607. The rich church fittings include an iconostasis from 1743-44, currently partially dismantled, an C18th baroque side altar with a painting of Christ at the Column, and many valuable icons including The Last Judgment from 1623.
