The population of Sirako is mainly Aromanian and it is the hometown of the poet Kostas Krystallis and the former Prime Minister Ioannis Kolettis. The rivers Chroussias and Kalaritikos, tributaries of Arachthos river, separate Sirako from its twin village Kalarites, although if you look at the villages from a far point, you think that they are almost attached to one another. Kalarites is surrounded from Peristeri and Tzoumerka mountains, and it is also at the altitude of 1200 m.
