Overview

This church with its two chapels was built between 1761 and 1769, the project allegedly being led by architect Pietro Antonio Trezini. The church itself is a spacious five-domed Baroque affair, shaping up as a square with the corners cut off. In 1831, the architect Avraam Ivanovich Mel'nikov built on a two-storey vestibule with Doric columns and thus introduced elements of classicism. In 1783, at the initiative of architect Giacomo Quarenghi, a three-tiered bell-tower was built next to the church and in 1848, F.I. Rusca built on one more tier.
