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 church is a must see when you go for a stroll in Larnaca, especially nice during a sunny day. At night, it is lit romantically.  more »

  • Really old church. Impressive given it's age. There are some tombs nearby and a crypt. Worth a visit particularly if you like Iconoclast art work.
  • As far as churches go this is a lovely one to visit. It's beautiful and old and has an intriguing story.
  • Not so big but nice building. Shops, hotels. And restaurants are around it. Very convenient to all
  • A must visit for anyone visiting Cyprus ans very popular with both Locals and tourists. Very nice photo opportunity day and night.
  • A very ironic iconic place. A church built in memory of a man who first time around couldn't stay in his grave and second time around was taken from his rest. Well kept and with little compromise to the quirks of tourism. Loved it.
