Nikolo-Peshnoshsky Monastery is a place little known, but very beautiful and interesting. Tourists rarely come here because they are driven around the popular sights of the Moscow region, but we stopped here because our team loves and appreciates all the historical and architectural monuments. And - do not regret it! Like most monasteries founded by the disciples of Sergius of Radonezh, this one was also built like a fortress. So here you can study domestic military art as well. Read about this cozy and beautiful monastery in my article.

Bypass outside
Inspection of monasteries I always prefer to start bypassing the outside, because most of them are built as fortified points, and the external bypass allows you to see a lot of beautiful and interesting.So it was this time. We start from the entrance, where the tablet with the name of the monastery hangs.
It is located in the village of Lugovoi, Moscow Region, near the town of Dmitrov.

The entrance to the monastery is classic, through the gate tower. The gate tower is always very powerful to repel possible attempts to break into the territory of the monastery.

Next is a piece of the wall, partially preserving the ancient appearance, partially rebuilt for residential premises. In the distance, loopholes are visible, through which it was possible to shoot from top to bottom, at enemies that got close to the wall.

Let me remind you that I write very often in my notes when I study Russian fortresses. Everyone knows Sergius of Radonezh, as an Orthodox leader. But not everyone pays attention to the fact that his disciples not only became also outstanding preachers of Christianity, but also that they founded many monasteries, and each of the monasteries eventually turned into a strong fortress.

For example, the well-known Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery, the Spaso-Prilutsky, Borisoglebsky near Rostov are all fortresses founded by the students of Sergius of Radonezh.And its monastery - the Trinity-Sergius Lavra - became in general one of the most powerful fortresses in Russia, which withstood the siege by the Polish troops, which lasted almost a year and a half, which is quite unique in our history! The wise strategist was Sergius of Radonezh ...
The wall of the fortress looks elegant, it no longer has a combat function in our times, but the towers still radiate force

A look back.
This shows that the monastery, although small, is a fairly strong fortification. Although in modern times rarely anyone remembers about it. And in vain. If we calculate how many such fortified monasteries we have, we will see that we have the Middle Ages in terms of fortresses that will not yield to European countries with their castles.

Around the corner, the bypass outside is interrupted, there is another entrance to the monastery. Gates made in the gap in the wall.And the path along the wall is occupied by gardens. If desired, they can be bypassed through the field, but this is set aside for later. In contrast to the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, where the space along the wall is rudely captured by fashionable cottages and parking lots, here the noble cause is the monastery garden where the monks work, and this only causes approval.

Peshnoshsky monastery is called for a simple reason. Its founder, a student of Radonezh Methodius, decided to make an additional test of strength for the construction. And the logs, necessary for the construction of the first churches and houses, wore on him across the river, although he could simply float on the water. From the words "foot burden" - and the name Peshnoshsky appeared.

Monasteries built defenses not only to protect their church wealth, which robbers often attempted. It was also an additional defense of the borders of the Moscow principality.

Further the wall is again occupied by gardens.But we entered through the open gate, taking a picture of a small corner tower. From this side of the tower low, apparently in the old days there were swamps, and there was no particular threat of attack. Unlike the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, there is no security here, no one shouted at us, demanding to leave, and we were able to take photos.
