Photographer's Note

Kremlin of Moscow is a big castle surrounded by high ramparts and twenty towers.
Senatskaya Tower is 34 meters high and was built in 1491 by an Italian architect, protecting the Kremlin in the side of the Red Square. --- In the next days I will post an image of it in the Red Square.
This tower had no name until 1787, when it was built the senate in the Kremlin and that building gave the tower its name. There was a gilded weather vane up there around 1860, after revolution it was topped by the red star.
Behind this tower is the Red Square.

A Torre Senatskaya tem 34 metros de altura e foi erguida por um arquiteto italiano em 1491 para defender o castelo do lado da Praa Vermelha.--- Daqui alguns dias vou mostrar uma foto dessa mesma torre vista da Praa Vermelha.
Essa torre no tinha nome at 1787, quando ergueram o prdio do Senado nas proximidades e ela ganhou o seu nome atual. Havia um catavento dourado no topo por volta de 1860, mas depois da revoluo puseram uma estrela vermelha l em cima.
