Find here Byzantine and medieval structures such as the church of Our Lady of Filerimos built by the Knights in the 15th century AD. The Church of St. George, which has wall-paintings dating back to the 14th and 15th century AD. Also, you can see here the very striking 12 stations of the Crucifixion, with its many steps and scenes from the Passion.

We continue now to the enchanting sight of the Butterflies valley. It is a lush green valley, with a little river running through it.

The valley is beautifully arranged with little wooden bridges, stone steps, and an uphill path that leads to the Monastery of the Virgin of Kalopetra, built-in 1784.

The Butterflies valley is a unique natural park where each year, from June to September, thousands of multi-colored butterflies appear. They live here attached to the tree trunks living from the sap, then lay their eggs and multiply.

The valley is a wonderful place to walk in under the shade of the trees. The characteristic scent of the pine resin which attracts the butterflies, the coolness from the abundantly flowing waters make this a little paradise even in the hot days of midsummer.
