The church was built in 1837. It is one of the most beautiful West Lemko Orthodox Churches.
The tripartite building was erected using log construction and the walls and roof were shingled. The interior is adorned with ornamental-figurative polychrome from 1900. Between the nave and chancel a contemporary iconostasis-like screen has been set up while the remnants of the old turn-of-the-C19th iconostasis have been placed on the walls. The chancel contains a main altar with a canopy and tabernacle from the mid-C19th. Worth seeing in the area! The Wincenty Pol green route, leading from Wysowa via Kozie Żebro (847 m a.s.l) to Magura Małastowska runs through Skwirtne.
