The Valley of Butterflies

A densely wooded and penetrated by a trickling stream valley with pine and storax trees. The tree exudes a resin which is used by the local churches to make frankincense and smells like vanilla. The valley during mid-June & September - August is the natural habitat of hundreds of thousands of Quadrina butterflies (actually a moth of the callimorpha quadripunctarea variety) attracted to the valley by the storax trees in order to mate.

The valley is a beauty spot in its own right with walkways, water-falls, rock pools, rustic bridges and resting places.

Open every day 08.30-16.30 h.
The price is 5 euro including the visit to the Natural History Museum of the valley.

 
The butterfly train is also available http://www.butterflytrain.gr/ and can drive you uphill to Kalopetra monastery and then walk easily downhill the valley of the butterflies.
