This Monastery contains the archeological site of the Holy 15 Martyrs or Tiberiopolis, the name that Strumica had in the Roman period.

The new church is from 1972, and the foundations of the older church from the 5th century were found when the new church was constructed.

It is a working monastery where you can stay, see here for more information.

The monastery grounds are very well kept, there are several animals in the garden and the people are extremely friendly.

There also is an icon gallery at the premises, but it was unfortunately closed during our stay. Allegedly, there are icons from the burnt down Church of St Dimitri, where nowadays the Church of St Cyril and Methodius can be found.

It is located in a part of town that mostly houses Roma families, and you can hear Gypsy music everywhere.
