Church of Saint Lazarus, Larnaca

4.7
Church of Saint Lazarus has stood for over 1,000 years through lootings, destruction, and fires, thanks to centuries of work and restoration. According to Orthodox beliefs, the church is the resting place of Lazarus of Bethany--a man raised from the dead by Jesus Christ--who was forced to escape from Judea and chose to hide in Cyprus, where he died 30 years later for the second time. See this 31.5 m (103 ft) wide and 14.5 m (48 ft) tall church with three domes, featuring three internal aisles with bulky double pillars. Observe the wood and golden 18th-century iconostasis, which was heavily damaged by fire in 1970.

  • This is the most beautiful church of Larnaka. We had the chance to assist to the service of an early Saturday, and the experience was very nice.  more »
  • Agios Lazaros is a piece of living history. A well renovated church from the 9th century. Don't miss the chance to check its walls inside. Wonderful piece of history  more »

  • I live near Larnaca and have visited this church many times and walk through it often. Very beautiful. The jewel of the city. Of special interest to me is the little covered graveyard behind the church with the tombs of foreigners from the Ottoman days including first Protestant missionaries and their children.
  • One of the best sights in Larnaca. This church not very big, but very beautiful inside. Also near the church good square. The entrance is free. So I recommend to visit it.
