This church is situated in a part of old Moscow known for its many beautiful churches. This particular one was one of the oldest stone buildings constructed at the Kitai Gorod wall. The church was designed in 1514 by Italian architect Alevise Friazin, who also designed the more famous Archangel Cathedral in the Kremlin. It was a church for tradesmen, built with the donations of rich merchants. St. Barbara was honored by the merchant fraternity by becoming the patron saint of trade. Today, this church is part of the Patriarch's Podvor'e (town house) in Kitai Gorod.
