The wooden church of Șomcuța Mare was probably built in the 16th or early 17th century. It is a small-size construction, consisting of a porch, a pronaos, a nave and a shrine, covered with shingles. The archery tower has a height of 16 m.

Due to delays in roof repair work, interior painting was destroyed. With the preservation work, the plank on the vault was changed. From painting on canvas, applied over the old one in 1871, only the fragments are preserved in the nave and the narthex.

The best preserved are the paintings from the altar. The iconostasis keeps the three registers. The paintings are bounded by borders, and they feature biblical scenes with several characters. At the top you can see a rectangular, starved and surrounded.

The royal doors are beautifully decorated and decorated with painted medallions, surrounded by the veils, like those on the upper part of the iconostasis. This place is only used since 1948, when the new church was finished.
