St. Michael Archangel's Church in Dębno - a Gothic, wooden church located in the village of Dębno from the fifteenth-century, which together with different churches is designated as part of the UNESCO Wooden Churches of Southern Lesser Poland.

The first church in Dębno was most likely raised in the thirteenth-century. The present church was built in the second half of the fifteenth-century, in the location of the former church. The church is one of the best kept wooden Gothic churches in Poland, and is seen as a landmark of Poland internationally . The church remains in its original structure, with a unique polychrome interior from around 1500, making it the oldest existing polychrome made from wood in Europe. The church is considered to be one of the oldest structures of its type in Poland, speculated to be second after the St. Michael Archangel's Church's tower in Binarowa.
