Ayios Lazarus - Church Of Saint Lazarus - Review
Lazarus, raised by Jesus from the dead, was consecrated Bishop of Kition. This beautiful Byzantine church was built here in the ninth century to house the tomb of the saint. The church has been carefully preserved, from the latin, greek and French inscriptions on it’s porch, the bell tower, to the Roccoco pulpit. Within the church are stored some stupendous icons including the Virgin and the child; St. George and the Dragon and the raising of Lazarus. The church is quietly grand, it’s atmosphere quietly mystic. Despite its small size, its startling features stand out proudly when you’re close. Don’t forget to go below and chack out the actual tomb of Lazarus. It’s in a quiet part of the town with some nice eateries close by. Walk around the tranquil surroundings while you nibble away.

Ayios Lazarus - Church Of Saint Lazarus, Larnaca Reviews
Stunning gold friezes & artworks (icons) and loads of them. Also, oddly for a church renowned for its artwork, also some very impressive brickwork in vaulted ceilings. Small church, but well worth a visit
A must visit if you're in Larnaca. This church is very important to the region historically, it's beautiful on the inside and the outside. When you go in make sure you go down to st Lazarus tomb, it's down the stairs on your right when you're facing the front of the Church.
Beautiful church. Free from entry! Photography allowed. Take note of closing time though
Majestic city building from outside. Very impressive inside (wear appropriate dressing). Closed in the mittle of the day.
Very beautiful and full of gold. If you want to see Byzantic architecture example, so here is it. Also do not forget legend about Lazar, who is patron of Larnaka: he died and woke up, when Jesus called him near the grave. Inside the church there are lots of icons and my favourite is St. George with the dragon.
