Șurdești wooden church was built in 1721 by carpenter master Makarios, for the Greek Catholic community. It later added a floor porch with two rows arches superimposed. The ship is covered with double eaves, separated by a row of windows.

The construction is distinguished by the high tower of 54 m, ranking among the highest sacral wooden buildings in the world (total 72m). The tower is equipped with gazebo extended outwards, over which rises helmet with four towers. The interior painting was made in 1783 by several painters.

The altar was painted by Stephen of Șișești, the nave by painter Stan and the narthex probably by a pupil of Stan. The narthex retains some scenes on the north wall. Iconostasis keeps well, but is a more recent, superimposed over the old.

The church is a historical monument, and in 1999 is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. The church was given back to the Greek Catholics.
