Butterfly Valley

Approxiamately 5km south of Parikia, on the Parikia-Alyki road, a fork to your left will lead you to the area of Psychopiana where the “Christ of the Forest” Monastery is located. Just west of the Monastery is the “Butterfly Valley”, one of the most significantes biotopes in Greece.

With its running springs and amazing array of foliage this valley provides the ideal eco-system for the hundreds of butterflies that populate the area during the summer months.
