The Greek Catholic Filial Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Ropica Górna (currently a Roman Catholic Filial Church) arose in 1813 or 1819.
The church has a tripartite construction, with an elongated nave and an almost square narthex and chancel. The church interior is covered by flat ceilings. The walls and ceilings are decorated with polychrome work from the turn of the C20th with ornamental and figurative motifs. The fittings include a rococo iconostasis from the mid-C18th (in the row of sovereign icons there is an icon of St. Onufry, rarely found in this region, a late-baroque main altar with a canopy and tabernacle, and two baroque side altars. Sites worth seeing! Until 1949 Ropica Górna (upper Ropica) was officially called "Ropica Ruska" (Russian Ropica).
