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
Well preserved church with a well-known history of the Bible. Great location in Larnaka, really shows the original architecture of the area. Please get off the seafront and admire the back streets.
Beautiful church built in late 9th century. A well maintained old monument.
The church has a really nice architecture. I love the golden plates inside. They even provide you with red cloth in order to cover if you're wearing shorts
Beautiful church in larnaca . Well worth the visit . Nice cafe nearby to take a break and shop around it for icons . Inside typical Greek Orthodox Church , this being an old one and therefore more interesting to see.
Church surrounded by cafes and bars. It is a great backdrop whilst eating lunch without getting ripped off. (If this is useful please give me thumbs up 👍)
