Jerusalem / Periods: Old Testament, New Testament, Roman, Byzantine, Arabic, Crusader, Mameluke, Turks.

Several lands were acquired by the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land in Jerusalem, including this land in 1863 near the tomb of Lazarus. Then it was between 1952 and 1955 on the ancient ruins of several ancient churches that a modern church dedicated to Saint-Lazare was built. Indeed we have near the church the tomb of Lazarus.
This church was built by the Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi. The church has a cruciform shape and stands above older churches. “Its walls are almost hermetically closed and without windows, the dome is solidly incorporated in this structure recalling a tomb in reference to Saint Lazare. But the upper structure, surmounted by the dome letting through the sun’s rays, still suggests a fairly optimistic and happy future.
