“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is a most beautiful Church and if you see nothing else in Larnace this is the one place to visit. We visited the Church during service/Mass and it was beautiful. The combined voices of the two male vocalists intersperced with the Priest's singing and the organ playing in the background was very special. The church contains many beautiful icons, has a very beautiful vaulted ceiling and a most imposing chandelier.

“And yet another must-see...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

One of the most important churches of Cyprus, historical, artistic, religious. After being resurrected, Lazarus made it to Cyprus where he died for the second and final time. Don't miss the bauhinia tree in the square!

“A beautiful temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Ayios Lazaros is such a wonderful church which can be admired for hours. If you visit take your camera. If possible enjoy a coffee at the nearby coffee shops and admire the view!

“Church Lazarus is supposedly buried”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Interesting graveyard and buriel chamber. The bible doesn't tell us what happened to Lazarus after he was resurrected by Jesus Christ, but perhaps h e did come to Cyprus and die there. From that point of iWeb I found it interesting.

“Lazarus .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Very beautiful interesting church right in the square in Larnaca. But how did Lazarus end up in Cyprus, and a piece of his skull in the altar? Curious!
