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.

Bellissima chiesa con le reliquie di san Lazzaro secondo me una delle più belle viste a Cipro. Le reliquie si trovano in quella bella scatola d argento che ho fotografato
This is a must if go to Larnaka. A very old church, with the tomb of Saint Lazarus (friend of Jesus) underneath. Just beautiful and very near to the city center.
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.
The famed Lazarus awaken from death by Jesus went to Cyprus and preached. Lazarus become the Bishop of Larnaka City and This St Lazarus Church entombed his remains. Amazing Anazing Site to visit and take in all the positive vibes
This church has to be the most popular in Larnaca. It has beautiful Icons Etc, and the tomb of Saint Lazarus downstairs. The services here are wonderful. :-) xXx.
