Rhodes - Filerimos & Valley of the Butterflies
Time Duration
: 4 hours (half day)
From/to: Rhodes Port

Tour Description
After a short drive to the west coast, we ascend to the top of Filerimos hill, where you will visit the monastery of Our Lady and the remains of the ancient acropolis of Ialysos, one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes Island. Visitors can walk along a “Golgotha”, a tree sheltered pathway with a series of shrines with scenes of the Holly Passion. This footway leads to an enormous imposing cross, from the top of which one can cherish the outstanding view of villages and bright green valleys that are generously stretched around.

Upon leaving Filerimos, drive down the west coast of the island through diversified villages, to reach the Valley of Butterflies: An idyllic and unique ecological setting, being a true pride of nature with narrow rock walkways, lakes decorated by water-lilies, rustic bridges, running waters, waterfalls and resting places.

The valley is stocked by pine and storax trees, loaded with millions of brown-red butterflies (a moth of panaxia quadripunktaria) from mid June to September. The smell of the tree resin spreads all the way to the top of the valley mixed with an aura of freshness.
