This unique combination of nature, architecture and history travels us in an Italian cinematic setting. The monumental architecture with its unique mosaics, the Italian baths, where thermal waters once flowed, the Atrium and every corner of Kallithea Springs, take us nostalgically to another era.

It is an ideal place to enjoy the stunning panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and take a stroll in the nature. Visitors can walk the Martyr’s Road, a road drawn up by Latin priests, representing in stone columns the twelve phases that Jesus had, while ascending to Golgotha. At its end, you will meet the 18 meter tall cement cross, a landmark of the area.
Valley of Butterflies
One of the most famous natural spots of Rhodes that definitely deserves your visit. It is a habitat that hosts the butterfly Panaxia Quadripunctaria, a very rare species found in only a few areas of the world, occupying the natural park from June to late September.
The name is due to a wide green lake inside the forest, where water flows from seven points. A unique experience awaits the visitor as he crosses the completely dark, narrow, 150 meters long Italian tunnel, leading to a loud waterfall! The fairytale landscape bonds perfectly with the wide biodiversity of the area, a landmark for nature lovers!
