Situated 12 km from Rhodes is the village of Kremasti. Traditionally an agricultural community, tourism infrastructure has been developed because of the proximity to a strange valley called the Koilada ton Petaloudon (Valley of the Butterflies).

Those who find themselves in the village around 15th August can join in the celebrations of the Panigiri tis Panagias (feast of the Assumption of Mary), visit the Pan-Hellenic craft exhibition and of course take in the other cultural events organised every year. Amongst the local sights is the impressive church of Panagia Kremasti.
