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 and can drive you uphill to Kalopetra monastery and then walk easily downhill the valley of the butterflies.
