There are few monuments in Pniewy. This is due to those times ago when timber was mostly wood, clay and straw, to a lesser extent stone and brick. Pniewy (in the Middle Ages) was a town made of wood. The architectural development did not endure time nor fires that had been frequently breaking out.
However, the city set-up kept its original spindle shaped character. In the center there is the Market Place and XIX and XXth century houses clustered along three sides of the square. The fourth side constitutes a frontage enclosed by the parish church of St-Laurent.
