This is an interesting place. Covered in icons. Go down to the crypt to visit the tomb of St Lazarus (mind your head). Beautiful spot and worth a visit if you're walking nearby.
Beautiful orthodox temple which looks like a small medieval castle. Very interesting story behind the construction of it. Also seem to be a very important place for orthodox pilgrims because of its importance. Entrance is free, but you have to wear appropriate clothes. Must see in Larnaca.
Lovely looking church in a nice part of the old town. The Di Vinci bar opposite is also nice
The most beautiful church I've seen in my 2 weeks in Cyprus. Magical.
A very beautiful Church. I love to come here and just look at the people and everything around here. Everything's busy, but not in a stressed out way. The church itself is quite beautiful although i have never been inside.
