An interesting Church because the tomb of Lazarus is in the crypt,also the ground floor is interesting and the Church and surroundings are well kept. There is also a museum to visit in a separate building in the grounds

Beautiful church. We lit a candle and made a donation. Fascinating tomb of Lazarus and there is a small museum with icons and church related historical artifacts.

Situated in the old part of Larnaka with other interesting places to see. One can walk around the old city easily, so park your car...pickup a map and go walking!.

Beautiful church off the main seaside road in Larnaca. Although small the grounds are impressive. Good lighting at night time. A must when you visit Larnaca

Small but ornate church. The Greek orthodox icons are beautiful. St Lazarus' tomb was under the church. Many devout visitors, both young and old, were present, and some kiss the glass where the bones are kept. The roads are a bit small leading to the church so be careful when driving.

Very interesting; the icons are gorgeous. St Lazarus' bones are displayed in an ornate cabinet, devout visitors kiss the glass above the bones-but it's not compulsory. Half an hour is enough to see everything
