We were really disappointed to see that it was closed due to construction works aiming at renovating its facade. It does look really impressive on the outside, too bad we couldn't visit it..

We had the good fortune of staying in the hotel across the street from this church. What fascinates me is how this place wound up here. The Russians who were having a Christening actually offered me food from their party. Good vibe & vista from this seaside house of Spirit.

The church is undergoing significant restoration but is still worthy of a visit. A small entrance fee of 1 Euro is quite reasonable & once the drapes & scaffolding have been removed a better viewing will be all too evident.

The church is very interesting on the outside, not so much so on the inside and very small. Never the less interesting if you have never seen a Russian Orthodox church

The spot is closed to the Casino Of Sanremo. I never paid a penny to enter in a Church... but in this case was requested.

It's a nice cathedral but too small and very modest inside. Not like normally orthodox cathedrals are.

Beautiful church, only a small fee is requested for a visit. On walking distance from the main tourist area of San Remo

This is a very interesting church and more like an art gallery. You have to pay to get in, but not much. It is well cared for and the docent was helpful.

Here you get to see one of the main attractions of the city and learn more about its link to nobility over the past centuries. The church has had a rescent renovation and looks really nice. They ask a small amount to enter, with this they will finance future renovations.

A small but interesting attraction but only 2 euros entrance and an insight into this type of establishment,which you do not come across everyday whilst on holiday!
