Italy - San Remo, Chiesa di Cristo Salvatore

Chiesa di Cristo Salvatore (Church of Christ the Saviour) is an Russian orthodox church, dating back to the year 1915. It was built for the Russian community that followed Tsarina Maria Aleksandrovna (wife of Tsar Alexander II) to San Remo in 1906; the foundation stone was laid in 1912. In that period about one thousand Russians lived in the town.

The Chiesa di Cristo Salvatore - with its onion domes and heavenly pale-blue interior - was designed by Alexei Shchusev, later finished by local engineer Pietro Agosti. Icons and murals of Christian saints line the interior. The appearance of the temple imitates the style of typical 17th-century Moscow churches. It has five domes, three altars and a belfry.

The church is still used today by the Orthodox community of San Remo and is one of the landmarks of San Remo.

A very beautiful and well decorated church Jaap..............I really like those colourful "onion" domes (including the one above the door). The interior looks just as lovely, with wonderful paintings and other artwork.

An excellent series.......with some nice. history to go with them.
