The Valley of the Butterflies
The hidden jewel of Paros can be found just 7 kilometers away from Parikia, near the monastery of Agios Arsenios, and was never experienced by most of the tourists that visited the island. The Valley of the Butterflies, is a unique natural site on Paros, with dense vegetation, such as cypress trees, wild olive and other fruit trees and a natural well. This natural combination creates a unique biotope for Jersey Tiger Moth butterflies, which can be admired, while creating a spectacular scenery. The butterflies of Paros are known for their wonderful coloring and appear from late May to late July, disappear in August and reappear in September.
