Kotan - 18th
   The Greek-Catholic church of at St. Cosmas and St. Damian (now Roman-Catholic) was presumably built in the 18th century and thoroughly renovated in 1841. During the renovation in 1963 a lapidarian consisting of 22 historic gravestones was established. This is one of the most typical sacred Buildings found in the west of the Lemko lands.

Świątkowa Mała - 1762
   It is assumed that the former Greek Catholic church dedicated to St. Archangel Michael (present-day Catholic church) was built in 1762, although it is more likely that the date concerns an enlargement of the former church (the nave and the women’s gallery) from the 17th c (today’s sanctuary). The chapel was renovated and probably restructured at the turn of the 19th and 20th c (the contemporary tower is said to come from this period). The chapel in Światkowa Mała belongs to the typical sacred buildings erected on the western Lemkos’ Lands.

Świątkowa Wielka

Chyrowa - 1780
   The Greek-Catholic church of the protection (Pokrov) of Our Lady was built in 1780 (now Roman-Catholic). The church was thoroughly renovated in 1932 and in the 1990s. The church in Chyrowa is one of the two (besides Bałucianka) surviving Eastern-rite churches of the type of sacred buildings characteristic of central and eastern Lemko land where the use of multi-field block work ceilings was popular.
