Church of Saint Lazarus, Larnaca

4.7
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.

  • Very cute Church, worth your time if you are in Larnaca. After dark the backlighting makes a fantastic impression from the outside, and the measure extremely atmospheric and worth to get there. I recommend, however, stop covering the shoulders.

  • 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 👍)
