Andronikov monastery  

The Spasksy Sobor (Savior's Cathedral) is the oldest stone building in Moscow. It was built in 1420-27. Some say that the fresco painter Andrei Rublyov was buried there. The monastery was founded by Metropolitan Alexei to fulfill his promise to do so if saved from a storm on the Black Sea during his visit to Constantinople.
