This church is absolutely beautiful. It stands tall in the middle of the busy city of Larnaca and it's surrounded by cafes and shops. It's architecture and design are stunning. It's definitely worth a visit.

Located in a beautiful square with little shops and cafes around to sit and enjoy the view. The church itself is amazing to look at, a real gem for Larnaka.

To understand the importance of this church I think you need to understand the Bible story of Lazarus better. The architecture is pretty amazing. The tomb is inside and down a small set of stairs. The amount of frescoes on the alter is pretty breathtaking and slightly overwhelming. The museum is barely worth the 1 euro entrance. It has artifacts... More

not the biggest landmark church you may ever have seen but this little church, set in a pretty square is quite a magical place. It is the focus of much care, pride and spirituality by the local people, all in all a moving and memorable place.

The Lazarus church is very beautiful. You must see it! And the surrounding are charming too. There are a lot of cozy greek style cafes around this place that makes this area even more impressive.

To my mind, the best times to visit the church are: 1. Saturday afternoon when there is a wedding, to see the locals all dressed up and excited 2. In the early evening, when the church is lit up and majestic 3. When there is a service, (fath is irrelevant) as long as you are able to appreciate the history,... More

This is one of the most important attractions in Larnaca and is one of the most peaceful places in Larnaca although I imagine in full season there are quite a lot of tourists. Worth the visit inside and also near-by grounds, very nice atmosphere inside. Some nice stores and taverns near-by, also very close to the beach and promenade.
