Lazarata (Greek: Λαζαράτα), is a town located in the eastern part of the island of Lefkada, Greece and serves the seat of the municipality of Sfakiotes. Lazarata is located south of the main town of Lefkada, northwest of Nydri and northeast of Vassiliki. I tis built on a slope at an altitude of 420m.

In a small distance there are some of the beautiful beaches of the Island such Pefkoulia, Mili or Kathisma beach. A bit further there are Egremni and Portio Katsiki.

Visitors who come to the Lazarata should see the two notable churches of Agios Dionissios and Agios Spiridonas which were built over 150 years ago. They still stand tall and proud, supporting the bells which call the Christian population to every service, in moments of joy and sorrow. The church of Agios Spiridonas was first built in the mid-eighteenth century. It has a white and gold baroque style with slender columns in the Corinthian order. The icon of the Archangel Michael in the shutter of the door is the most likely a work of the eminent icon painter V. Sideris. Its belfry is tall and imposing, built in soft stone on tree levels.

Lazarata village with its beautiful houses that the owners kept the traditional character, picturesque streets and paved squares retain unique place. It is surrounded by craggy cliffs, olive groves, towering cypress and lush mountain scenery. The life here is blissfully slow, there are just a few cafés and taverns where locals gather for gossip over glass of ouzo.

Lazarata has a school, a lyceum (middle school), churches, banks and  a few squares.
