Travel Tips for Paros

Butterflies....

by Just_Jenny

On our visit to Paros it is well worth paying a visit to the Petaloudes Valley which translates to “Valley of the butterflies" despite the name technically there are no butterflies here!!

It’s a beautiful, green wooded area, full of trees and many beautiful flowers where thousands of Jersey Moths come here to mate, during the months May through to August. This is a tranquil and peaceful place; the garden is enclosed with dense undergrowth, a water feature and a path to follow. At first it seems they are hard to spot, and then almost out of nowhere there are 100’s of them! It truly is an amazing sight with every branch and leaf covered in moths! Out of respect, silence is a must, as these sensitive little creatures do not like to be disturbed!

There is a small cafe here where you can buy light refreshments and there are toilet facilities provided. You can also buy postcards of the area and enclosure.

The “Valley of the butterflies” is 6km south of Parikia near Psichopiana village, and is just after the Monastery of “Christos tou Dassous” We got here by quad bike, which we hired in Parikia, if you plan to go here by bus please check with timetables for travel information.

There is a small entrance fee of approximately 2 Euros

CHURCH OF 100 DOORS (Panagia Ekatontapyliani)

by parsix

This is an impresive Byzantine monument.
Notice anything different? It's the only church in Parikia that is not white.
This is more than a simple church, many legends surround this place. It was started by St. Helen, the mother of Constantine, while on a pilgrimage to find the path to the True Cross. As is the greek custom when in trouble at sea, she vowed to build a church on this spot.
Another legend surrounds the gates, or doorways. Ekatontapylani was made up of three interlocking buildings, with 99 doors and windows. According to legend, when the 100th door is found, Constantinople (Istanbul) will return to the Greeks.

...Paros...

by pocopato

Paros is another amazing island in the Cyclades! Though not as much of a party atmosphere as Ios, there are still lots of people to meet and beaches to lay on! Everything in Paros is within a short ferry ride or bus ride from the port. Nice and convenient and a good relaxing time!!

"Before and after..."

Before going to Paros, I had only heard a little about it. Like all Greek islands, it turned out to be a great place to beach and relax and I was surprised at how many different beaches and villages you can day trip to from the port!

"More information..."

For the most part, things in Paros are located in the port. There are tons of places to stay as soon as you get off the ferry and every room comes with someone at the port trying to get you to stay there! It is really easy to find a nice suite or room here and make it a base from which to explore the rest of the island! Buses run to other spots on the island every couple hours during the day and there are ferries which run to the neighbouring island of Antiparos as well (apparently the caves are something to see here but I missed them because they close in the afteroon!). Many of the beaches have a resort type set up. There will be pools set up and lounge chairs and bars as well as chairs and umbrellas by the beach. Often times they are free and the place makes its money by bringing you drinks which will be necessary in the sun! Pounda Beach is one of my favorites and has a set up just like this. The port has some amazing shops and restaurants to explore when a break from the beach is needed and time in Paros can't help but be relaxing!
