This open-air museum in the heart of Cappadocia comprises a lovely area of rock chapels and former monasteries. The chapels, from the 12 & 13th centuries, all carved within the rock formations contain beautiful frescoes and paintings of Christian stories. The various groups of rock formations are connected with good paths. Some of the chapels are accessed by steep steps, and there are lovely views across the valleys from the higher points. Outside the main museum area but still accessed via the main entry ticket is the magnificent "buckle" chapel, probably the best of all. Unmissable for those in the area.
