Did you know that Rhodes is one of the greenest islands of Greece? Due to countless underground streams and springs, there are many verdant valleys. The Valley of the Butterflies or Petaludes (Πεταλούδες) goes through the Canyon of the Pelekanos River and forms an ideal ecosystem for the rare species of moth – Kalimorphos Panaxia Quatripunctaria or Jerseytiger moth.
