The Valley of the Butterflies

#6 of 21 places to visit on Rhodes
The Valley of the Butterflies is located in the municipality of Petaloudes. This is one of the wettest places of Rhodes, which is a favourable environment for the emergence of butterflies.

The main attraction here are butterflies Arctiidae. It is difficult to see them on the bark of trees, but as soon as they flap their wings, you will immediately notice them because of a bright colour of their wings.
