On the road from Serres to Drama, at 2 km before the village Alsitrati, emerges through the thick vegetation the St. Kiriaki Holy Monastery, considered to be among the oldest ones together with the Blessed Virgin Mary Ikosifinissa Holy Monastery. Very often devastated by the Turks it preserves only the main gate.
Its reconstruction started in 1956, the date on which the today’s (1997) Superior was settled here. Initially the Monastery was a monks’ Abbey and during the year 1906 it housed 95 monks.
There is no guest house and today it houses 2 Nuns. The feast day of the Monastery is on 7 July to commemorate Great Martyr Kiriaki.
