Brief Description (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1053 )

The wooden churches of southern Little Poland represent outstanding examples of the different aspects of medieval church-building traditions in Roman Catholic culture. Built using the horizontal log technique, common in eastern and northern Europe since the Middle Ages, these churches were sponsored by noble families and became status symbols. They offered an alternative to the stone structures erected in urban centres.

The list:

St. Michael the Archangel Church in Dębno St. Michael the Archangel Church, Debno
St. Leonard Church in Lipnica Dolna St. Leonard Church, Lipnica Dolna
