Petit Futé's opinion on ÉGLISE ORTHODOXE RUSSE

Vintage plate 2020

The church has hosted eminent personalities such as the Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorovna, mother of Emperor Nicholas II and her daughters, the second wife of Emperor Alexander II and most of the grand dukes. In 1892, the year of the construction of the church and at the same time the year of the alliance between France and Russia, many Russians came to spend their holidays in Biarritz (more than a thousand in 1895). In 1917, during the Russian Revolution, many people managed to flee their country and some of them took refuge in the Basque Country and today it is their descendants who hold this magnificent heritage where they celebrate the liturgy on Sundays. Built in a Byzantine style by a biarrot architect, Mr Tisenet, its interior is surprising: one can see the iconostasis and icons once of St Petersburg. Since June 2015, the Orthodox church has been classified as a Historical Monument. Orthodox or belonging to another obedience or simply passionate about history and heritage dedicated to religion, it is always a privileged welcome that will be reserved for you. And above all, let us not forget that it is thanks to the donations of private individuals that this monument is preserved and resists time. Iconoclastic place in front of the Hôtel du Palais. The celebrations are in Slavonic and French, the reading of the Holy Scriptures is also in Russian. Religious and parish feasts, agape, catechism, all this is part of the manifestation of faith. Indissociable site of Biarritz.

Belle église à visiter : bel accueil
nous sommes arrivés pratiquement à la fermeture mais le guide nous a insisté pour que nous puissions entrer : c'est sans regret car c'est un lieu chargé d'histoire et on nous a expliqué qu'il était urgent que des travaux de rénovation soient entrepris et c'est les dons qui vont en parti y participer - à recommander

En plein Biarritz, une église orthodoxe ! Peut au fait de cette variante de la chrétienneté, nous avons été un peut au hasard dans cet édifice. Les personnes présentes nous ont très bien reçus et nous ont donner un rudiment de connaissance sur leurs pratiques.
