Novodevichi convent  

Novodevichi convent - obviously not a very good photo of the diagram, but it does give an idea of the layout. The entrance gate with its Transfiguration Church is in the front wall to left center. The Smolensk cathedral is directly ahead. The bell tower is in the left side wall. The Intercession church is over the rear gate. The Lopukhin tower and building are along the right side of the front wall and the Naprudnaya(Pond) tower is at the right front corner. The Assumption church with the long refectory attached is to the right of the Smolensk Cathedral.
