4.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This is a lovely place to see as it's a historical sightseeing spot. Don't miss it! Especially of you're religious. 
  • An amazing church! If you are in Larnaca do not miss to visit this church which is very close to Finikoudes. An excellent place also for a church wedding! 
  • I recommend everyone to visit and touch the biblical histories, their materialization. AMAZE ICONS AND HOLY RELICS!
