If we want to reach the Intercession of the Theotokos Orthodox Church in Owczary, we have to drive along a winding side road to the very end of the long Beskid valley but our effort will be doubly rewarded. The temple, hidden in the shade of Magura Małastowska, is not only beautifully located but is also famous as one of the most beautiful and oldest Lemko Orthodox churches. Its tripartite silhouette with bulbous domes, as well as the valuable interior, were built most probably in 1653. The values of the Orthodox church were a reason for which, together with three other wooden Orthodox churches, it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
