The church of St. Michael the Archangel was mentioned as early as 1189. The present Romanesque church was built in mid-13th century, and the tower was added in the 15th. The church was rebuilt in Baroque style in 1666 and 1715. The church is oriented, single-nave, with a pentagonal chancel of red brick. Inside, you will find mostly Baroque décor, however, in the chancel, there survived six Romanesque columns with richly decorated heads. At the gate of the cemetery, note one of the most impressive figures of St. John of Nepomuk in Silesia, from 1733. In the wall of the cemetery, a Gothic pillar shrine is found.
