Church of St Philip and St James the Apostles | Poland

Saints Philip and James Church is a Gothic, wooden church dating from the fifteenth-century, located in the village of Sękowa.

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.
