Saint Lazarus Church, Larnaka City

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Church
Saint Lazarus Church 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. Our Larnaka City trip builder makes visiting Saint Lazarus Church and other Larnaka City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very beautiful church, many images that impress. Access to the relics of St. Lazarou. Worth to pass food from there!

  • Visited with young teens. Interesting experience. As per most sites in Cyprus, there were not very good explanations present depicting the history of the church. Suggest visitors do this prior showing...  more »

  • Historical, good atmosphere. Great place to go for any tourist.
  • Beautiful church. Extremely old. Interwoven styles of East and West, and after the fall of the island under Ottoman rule half the church was used by Catholics and half of the Orthodox.
  • No trip to Larnaca will be complete without a visit here. Visitors are free to explore freely around this small church. Women are required to cover bare shoulders, but cloaks are provided freely on entry.
  • Nice Greek Orthodox church with st Lazarus tomb.
  • Stunning place to visit wonderfull Especially walking around, apriciating the wonderfull architechture of the place
