  The holy Monastery of Saints Kirikos and Iouliti is built up on a hill, to the northeast of Sidirokastro. It was founded in 1968 by the most venerable Bishop of Sidirokastro, Ioannis, when he first arrived from Samos to the Holy Metropolis of Sidirokastro.
  It is a cenobitic Monastery that today (1997) houses 40 Nuns occupied with knitted goods, gold embroidered pieces and hagiography while at the same time they are exclusively responsible fro the care of the Orphanage for girls of Sidirokastro and the Nursing Home of the Holy Metropolis of Sidirokastro.
