Agios Ioannis Siderianos Monastery

Location: Triades   

The Monastery of Agios Ioannis Siderianos, Milos Cyclades: The Monastery of Agios Ioannis (Saint John) Siderianos is located on a hill above the bay of Agios Ioannis, on the western part of Milos island. It can be reached through a track road from the centre of the island and only a few monks live there today. The surrounding area is almost deserted, as there is no village closeby.

According to the locals, this monastery was the sight of a miracle: in the Medieval Times, some locals had locked themselves inside this monastery to protect from an attack of pirates. They prayed to Saint John and that time the wooden door turned into iron, which is how the monastery took its name (Siderianos in Greek means iron). It is also said that one of the pirates tried to shoot a gole against the iron and his arm was paralyzed.
