Within 7 km from Parikia and heading towards west, near the Monastery of Christos and inside the forest, there is lush green place called the Valley of Butterflies (Petaloudes Park). It is a fantastic landscape with plenty of water and dense vegetation, a unique monument of the natural beauty of Paros.

In this small park you can enjoy your walk and observe closely the numerous swarms of butterflies of the Jersey tiger moths species, which dwell in the foliage and tree trunks.

When the butterflies are flying around, it creates a truly unique spectacle, as the colour under their wings is bright red, whereas the rest of their body is dark coloured.
