Places of Refuge Underground

These underground tunnels were places where locals hid from invading armies. Fascinating, although I do not normally like caves.

I suposse that as a tourist it is something unusual but in the truth it is a tribute to the humbleness worthy of admiration as to Saint Francisco de Asis....an habitat in the moon....

The geology is tuff rock which has been weathered by rain and wind and sun to form unworldly shapes and pyramid like formations. At the base of the rock walls or in the cliffs, stone was hollowed out to form houses. Prior to this it was a refuge for fleeing Christians. At dawn each morning hundreds of hot air balloons...

While visiting Turkey, after visiting Istanbul and any of the Mediterranean beach cities, Cappadocia is a must do excursion known for its hot air balloons and CAVE Dwellings. These cave hotels and pansiyons are everywhere in Goreme, uchhisar and Urgup but those who love quieter, more serene and more near to nature atmosphere, Urgup cave dwellings are the greatest choice.

We went to Cappadocia last year. We had a quite a few second thoughts about going into the middle of Turkey which is getting pretty close to where the bad guys are. We Shouldn't have worried as everything went off great. We went with Fez Travel and could not praise them enough for their professionalism. Our guide in Cappadocia was... More

A very different place where one sees the many caves including the city inside the cave. Worth seeing these places along with the great photo opportunity.

LOVED IT... What a wonderful way to go back in time to see how cave man lived. So many amazing caves alive with frescos that date back so far. I am definitely going back

There are caves dating from the 3rd or 4th century where ever you look. The volcanic stone makes it easy to carve out. You can actually scratch it off with your fingernail. Some caves are still churches, some are museums, some are abandoned, some are modern dwellings or hotels, some are stores, and some are fruit warehouses. There are beautiful... More

The whole of cappadocia is basically a little crazy but the cave dwellings are a must see in the location, you'll feel like you've gone back in time and possible left the planet. Only down side is the difficulty of exploring with a toddler.... for adults and teens this is perfect. Also think about the time of your visit, mid... More
