Porąbka
The Porąbka dam on the Soła river looks both impressive and elegant. In the interwar period, when it was constructed, it was considered the height of technological sophistication. Gabriel Narutowicz, who later became President of Poland, worked on the design of the dam. It was built with much effort to prevent catastrophic flooding in the Soła river valley. After the Second World War, a small power plant was built on the dam.
Czernichów
The historic chapel and the wooden bell tower in Czernichów is one of the characteristic, sacral monuments of the Beskid landscape. The chapel dates from the eighteenth century. It is made of brick and covered with a roof of shingles. The wooden belfry is a post and beam construction, whose sloping walls are covered with wooden boards. The tower is protected with a shingled roof with a lantern, in which you can see a bell with an interesting history. From the side of the road, over the door, there is some space created for the chapel with a statue of the Virgin Mary.
The Little Beskids Landscape Park is located on the border of the Silesian and Lesser Poland voivodeships. In terms of area, it comprises one of the smallest and relatively low mountain chains in the Polish Beskids. Stretching from the West to the East, the Little Beskids is 35 km long, and consists of the two ranges: the Czupel Range (also called the Czupel and Magurka Wilkowicka Range) and the Łamana Skała Range (also known as the Madohora Range). There are a few nature reserves within the area of the park.
Porąbka
Zasolnica a typical hill with a height of 555 m above sea level. It belongs to the range of Hrobaczowa Łąka in the Little Beskids.

Two hiking trails cross the range, of which the blue one from Żarnówka Mała to Kozy passes through the reserve.
