Description

View of Saint Basil’s Cathedral as seen from slightly above ground level. The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed is a sixteenth-century building standing on the Red Square in Moscow. It was named after an eccentric Orthodox saint of the “holy fool” description, who was buried in the vaults.

The caption reads in the original French: Église de St. Basile le Bienheureux (Vassily Blagénnoy) à Moscou.
