Create an itinerary including Church of Saint Lazarus
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.

  • Beautiful church inside and outside. Went there for Easter , it was a lovely traditional experience. We got the candle light all the way from Israel. A traditional Cypriot Easter.

  • One of the most important Orthodox churches and monuments in the world. It is also one of the most beautiful churches I have ever been in and there is a coffin of St. Lazarus as well as a crypt where he was buried under the church. You can visit all of it free of charge and if you want you can donate something to the church. The whole place is just wonderful. If you are in Cyprus a must see.
  • A beautiful Church with fantastic architecture and history. We didn’t go inside the Church as we felt we weren’t dressed appropriately at the time, but they did have shawls/coverings hanging on hooks outside for public use….just peaking though the doors the inside looked wonderful: we will go in on our next visit. They had a QR code (story telling statue) for a link to some audio history of the site, which we thought was excellent.
