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.

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

  • A very ironic iconic place. A church built in memory of a man who first time around couldn't stay in his grave and second time around was taken from his rest. Well kept and with little compromise to the quirks of tourism. Loved it.

  • I love to see these beautiful ancient buildings, loved and cared for, in the middle of a thriving and busy city. There was a church service on, and though people were walking in and out and generally milling about inside, I thought it a bit inappropriate to be doing the touristy thing during their apparent solemnity 😕 Other than that the architecture and history are stunning 😀

  • For tourists - a great historical site, beautiful church, St. Lazarus tomb and remains. Free entrance, taking pictures is allowed. For the ladies - wearing a skirt is obligatory, if you are in pants or in a short skirt, you will need to put a long one which is available at the entrance.

  • A special place for Christians Orthodox. It has a good vibe, you can pray in silence and no one will disturb you. The entrance it's free.

  • 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.
