Attractions near the Cactus Hotel
Saint Lazarus: The man who died twice
The Church of Saint Lazarus is only 600 metres from the hotel. Named after Lazarus of Bethany who is said to have been resurrected by Jesus, the church is a powerful monument to Larnaca’s religious history and culture.
When you visit the Church of Saint Lazarus you’ll notice that the outside has a very old and grainy appearance. This is because the church was built in the 9th Century and is now only one of three Byzantine churches remaining in Cyprus. Inside, you’ll be able to practically feel the church’s history and witness the tomb of Saint Lazarus, along with intricate stonework and wood-carved furniture.
An ancient mosque
A short drive from the hotel, out to the west bank of Larnaca Salt Lake will get you to the Hala Sultan Tekke (also known as ‘the Mosque of Umm Haram’). The shrine dates back to the 18th Century and is considered a very sacred place, which thousands of pilgrims still visit each year.
While visiting, you will be able to see the tomb of Umm Haram, Muhammad’s wet nurse, which is the focal point of the Hala Sultan Tekke. There is also a cemetery, mosque, mausoleum, minaret and additional tombs. You might also want to save a little bit of time to explore the nearby Larnaca Salt Lake.
