The church in Debno Podhalanskie, a splendid testimony of Polish culture and of Podhale people's capability, is numbered among the highest-class monuments. This Gothic church was built of larch wood in the middle of the 15th century. Its structure was joined by notching and reinforced with spiles, but with no nails.This is one of the six Wooden Churches of Southern Little Poland, on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 2003.
The Parish Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Dębno Podhalańskie was built in 1490, with a spire added in 1601. The church’s emergence is linked to the activity of the Cistercians in Ludźmierz, but the first reliable mention dates from 1335. The interior church walls are decorated by unique painting and polychrome work from the C15th-C16th, featuring geometric and floral motifs in a striped arrangement. Inside the church you can see: a late-gothic triptych in the main altar dating from the early C16th, a historical cross from 1380, a unique C15th xylophone and a tabernacle from the early C14th. In 2003 the building was entered onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.
