Church of Saint Lazarus has stood for over 1,000 years through lootings, destruction, and fires, thanks to centuries of work and restoration. According to Orthodox beliefs, the church is the resting place of Lazarus of Bethany--a man raised from the dead by Jesus Christ--who was forced to escape from Judea and chose to hide in Cyprus, where he died 30 years later for the second time. See this 31.5 m (103 ft) wide and 14.5 m (48 ft) tall church with three domes, featuring three internal aisles with bulky double pillars. Observe the wood and golden 18th-century iconostasis, which was heavily damaged by fire in 1970.

According to legend, Lazarus brought Christianity to today's Lérnaka (then Kiton). The Agios Lazarus is a very beautiful Greek Orthodox church, which is otherwise rather unadorned, but houses a remarkable icon of the saint.
Come dal titolo, mi ripeto, ma che carina, specialmente la sera, posto veramente molto bellino. Per digerire quello che avete ingurgitato in serata, specialmente i fritti, va benissimo. more »As the title, I repeat myself, but that nice, especially in the evening, very beautiful place. To digest what you swallowed in the evening, especially the fried, that's fine.
What an inspirational place: St Lazarus the friend of Christ. You can't help feeling great in such an awe inspiring place. May God bless all his people.
So much historical and amazing place! When you enter this cathedral you feel the energy of this place. One of the places you must visit in Cyprus! It is better to spend at least about half an hour in this holy place to get full of energy. Cathedral is located in the Larnaka city center so you can't miss this place)
