One of the top attractions in the region, this outdoor museum contains the remains of many churches carved into the famous Cappadocia stone. Of note are the many excellent frescoes that can be seen when exploring the various structures.

Right from the moment you step in, this place amazes you. It's mind blowing to even imagine how the caves were built, how people lived there, and how wonderfully smart they were back then, especially given the little resources they must've had then!

A bunch of christians persecuted and chased. All they wanted to do is practice their religion freely and look what they achieved. Making caves out of boulders and churches out of caves. Don't miss the Dark church which depicts the magnificent frescos on ceilings depicting...More

No, not in the centre of town but a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. Wonderful place to walk around and worth paying a little extra to see the Dark Church. A very beautiful place and do not miss it
