The church together with the gates from dolomite and surrounding wall is under protection as architectural memory. The church built in 1790 is three-naved in low-key late classicistic style. Interesting is built at the same time three-part gate. On each side of its main entrance wall surface hang two half-columns with Doric serifs.
Interesting to know: Church was built by order of Catherine the II. Since the congregation was established there were 30 priests.

City Church At Kuressaare

A bit poor condition. Better visit would be REO. 12 km from city center. Open every day. Monks and nuns labouring in gardens.

Went for the service

A beautiful gate beckons you in to this church in the center of town. There are the usual icons, but nothing special.
