Long Description:
"Rhodes is recognized for its rich vegetation and natural beauty, which is very rare on a Greek island! The canyon of Pelekanos River hosts a unique Valley that is named after the Panaxia Quatripunctaria Butterfly. The 1 km route that composes the Butterfly Valley is beautifully organized with wooden bridges over pools and falls of water, paved footpaths, and little benches to enjoy the scenery.

The Valley is situated close to the village Theologos, some 23 km southeast from Rhodes town, and 10 km from the Airport. The Valley was found in the 1930s by Italians, who developed a beautiful 1 km path that goes through the canyon along with the areas where the butterflies are most densely populated. First studies were conducted by a German entomologist Reinhard Eiger.

There are three entrances with parking areas. The bottom entrance is next to the Museum of Natural History. The middle entrance is considered to be the main entrance with a snack bar and a souvenir shop, and the upper entrance is next to the Monastery of Panaghia Kalopetra."
