The originally Baroque-style chapel of St. Barbara was built in 1669. A century later it was converted into a church with an angular tower. The rectangular building ended with a crescent wall has an angular tower at its western side; the inside houses a three-beam wooden choir, the vault of the dome bears a painting of the Apotheosis of St. Barbara from the 18th century.

The remarkable features include the interior figural decorations of the main altar and pulpit with the painting of St. Barbara by Prague painter Josef Quaisser. The statues of St. Margaret, St. Catherine, sitting Evangelists and sandstone font were destroyed. The side altars feature paintings of the Virgin Mary of Karlov and St. John of Nepomuk, copies of paintings by J. J. Heinsch.

The village green not far from the church boasts a sculpture from 1753. It is peculiar in that a single sculpture represents both St. John of Nepomuk and St. Václav. The pedestal is decorated with scenes from legends of both saints.
