Butterfly Valley – Filerimos Tourfrom
The famous Valley of the Butterflies (2h), a setting of rare natural beauty. The Valley of Butterflies (in Greek ‘’Petaloudes’’) is a natural reserve in the northern part of the island. It is as idyllic as it sounds, and it is worth a visit. It has been one of the most famous attractions on the island for decades. This earthly habitat offers an enchanting landscape, dense vegetation, stunning wooden bridges, cobblestone paths, small ponds, never-ending waterfalls, peaceful atmosphere, and an overall extraordinary experience for its visitors.
This is a unique place as there is a natural forest of Liquidambar Orientalis trees (Oriental Sweetgum) or ‘’Zitia’’ in Greek, which makes it one of the only biotopes hosting these trees in Europe. It is here where you will have the chance to meet the lovely butterfly species named Panaxia Quadripunctaria.Filerimos (1h) is a hill of 267 meters high and it used to be the citadel of ancient town of Ialysos. The hill includes the foundations of the temple of Athena Polias, an early Christian basilica and a small subterranean Byzantine church. There is a road that sets off from the square that leads to the westernmost point of the hill (Golgotha). At the end of the road of Martyrdom stands 18 meters tall cross raised by the Italians in 1930. Without a guide. Only transfer. The entrance fees of the archaeological sites are not included in the price of the ticket.
