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
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
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 👍)
Beautiful architecture. Feels like your walking in history. Read up about its past and it will make you appreciate it more. There is also the tomb of Saint Lazarus downstairs with a tap coming out to the wall, which I believe is holy water. On both sides of the church there are shops that sell religious items, such as icons, bracelets and crusifix's. The one of the right of the front of the church belongs to the church iteself.
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
Wow could have stayed for hours here had a wonderful spiritual experience that will live with me for the rest of my life
