In 1726 the Stroganov family built a copper foundry in Taman on the bank of the Tamanka River, which was then closed in 1774 due to the interruption of the supply of raw material delivered by water from the Romanov copper mines. In 1779 the Stroganovs started the construction of the wooden church of Petropavlovsk, abandoned at the beginning of the 20th century and finally destroyed by a fire in 1981.
The construction of the current church was started by the Kiryanov family, on the model of the Greek-Eastern Orthodox churches, choosing the upper slope of the right bank of the Kama River with an open view of the landscape. The works continued for about 10 years, ending in 1912. In 1913 it was consecrated in the name of Saints Peter and Paul, symbolized by the domes of the monument, originally covered with gold. The church has five domes with an apse, a small refectory and a three-level bell tower. The plan is cross-shaped combined with a circular layout. The façades of the church are characterized by a tympanum pattern with rich geometric decorations in bricks, with framed semi-columns, a lower band, crosses in relief, frames and geometries in the upper part of the arched and circular openings.
In 1934 the Soviet authorities closed the building, which was converted in the late 1960s in a cinema. In 1968 the central dome of the church and the roof of the bell tower were destroyed by a storm flash, causing the abandonment of the church and the worsening of its conservation conditions.

The on-site survey, conducted in 2018, was focused on a triple level of analysis of the complex: on the landscape, on the architecture and on the constructive/pathologies system.
The landscape level of analysis has been conducted with aerial cameras on photogrammetric drones, providing the documentation of both village and monumental ensemble. The use of close-range methods of digitization, as Terrestrial Laser Scanner and Reflex camera, has provided the development of a unique sparse database with both spatial and RGB information on the morphological character of the monument.
Reliable drawings have been developed from the achieved information, reaching a high level of detail in the description of architectural features and in the mapping of conservation and integrity state of surfaces. The triangulation of high-poly “reality-based” mesh models has also supported an evaluation of structural integrity and stability, highlighting the curvature and deviation of geometries in the plastered and masonry blocks.
