The wooden buildings date from the mid-C19th.
They are wide-façade buildings with a manor house feel as well as free-standing rural houses. The latter have interesting gates with an unusual arrangement of planks on the door frame surface, or panel decoration. The buildings on the market square consist of bourgeois brick houses from the end of the C18th, built after the town fire of 1795. Among the most beautiful is the C17th “Dom na Dołkach” (“House on the Pits”), erected from stone and covered by a shingled roof. One precious Stary Sącz wooden building is the Szekler Gate a gift from the Szeklers of Transylvania for John Paul II on the occasion of the canonisation of St. Kinga.
