Photographer's Note

Pokrovsky monastery (intercession Monastery) was founded in 1364 but what we can see today came from 16th century, when it was transformed in a prison for aristocratic women who were obligated to be nuns, in those times when a rich woman was a problem to his family they were sent to monasteries, many of them wasn't able to give heirs to the czar or the czar was tired of them and wanted to get merry again, or their family fell in political troubles, or the husband of them was executed... During 16th to 17th century it was one of the largest of Russia. In 1923 the monastery was closed and destroyed by Soviet government and a laboratory to create biologic guns was working here. Some years after the monastery was restored and became a museum. Nowadays it is a religious building again.
The monastery is surrounded by ramparts and has some buildings inside, here we can see the entrance of the main church with some religious in front.
It was raining again when I arrived here.

o Convento Pokrovsky (da Intercessão), foi fundado em 1364, mas os prédios que vemos hoje datam do século 16. Nessa época o local foi transformado numa prisão para mulheres da aristocracia, caso um czar se cansasse da mulher ou ela não lhe desse herdeiros, ele simplesmente se livrava dela mandando-a para esse lugar e se casava novamente. Outras mulheres vieram para cá para serem freiras porque suas famílias caíram em desgraça, por seus maridos terem sido executados ou por elas terem sido envolvidas em política. Durante os séculos 16 e 17 esse foi um dos maiores conventos da Rússia. Em 1923 o convento foi fechado pelo regime soviético,teve partes destruídas e virou laboratório de armas químicas, depois foi restaurado e virou museu. Atualmente é um complexo religioso.
O convento é rodeado de altas muralhas e dentro temos alguns prédios e igrejas, aqui vemos a catedral mais importante com alguns religiosos na porta.
Chovia novamente quando cheguei ao convento.
