The wooden church from Pestiș was built in Maramureșean style, probably made in XV century and remade in 1797, a fact specified on the entrance's inscription.

After the beautiful decorated door with rope motif we reach in the pronave that has a straight ceiling and further on in the arched nave with the shape of a half decahedru. The interior walls have no paintings but the iconostasis is much decorated.

Made in 1810 it has biblical images arranged in four parts and the royal doors are lacy in garlands and bunches. The royal doors and the three icons from the church belong to the painter Ioan Zugravu, original from south of the country.

The church was many times modified, in 1862 the tower was rebuilt and the porch as well.
