The Grotto of the Butterfly is a mystical place in which thousands upon thousands of butterflies reside. Its location is unknown to all but the most dedicated explorers of Achaea. However, it is known that as a child, the butterfly collector Vellis stumbled across this place, and it is then that his love of butterflies began.
