A rock temple in Cappadocia
In ancient geography, Cappadocia or Cappadocia (Turkish:
Kapadokya) was the name of the extensive inland district of Asia
Minor (modern Turkey).
Cappadocian region is the place where nature and history
come together most beautifully within the world. While
geographic events are forming Peribacalari (fairy chimneys),
during the historical period, humans had carried the signs of
thousand years old civilizations with carving houses and
churches within these earth pillars and decorating them with
Cappadocia contains several underground cities, largely used by
early Christians as hiding places before they became a
legitimate religion. The Cappadocian Fathers of the fourth
century were integral to much of early Christian philosophy. It
also produced, among other people, another Patriarch of
Constantinople, John of Cappadocia who held office 517520. For
most of the Byzantine era it remained relatively undisturbed by
the conflicts in the area, first with the Sassanid Empire and
later against the Islamic expansion led by Arabs.
The area is a world famous and popular tourist destination, as
it has many areas with unique geological, historic and cultural
The region is southwest of the major city Kayseri, which has
airline and railroad service to Ankara and Istanbul.
The Cappadocia region is largely underlain by sedimentary rocks
formed in lakes and streams, and ignimbrite deposits erupted
from ancient volcanoes approximately 9 to 3 million years ago
(late Miocene to Pliocene epochs). The rocks of Cappadocia near
Goreme eroded into hundreds of spectacular pillars and
minaret-like forms. The volcanic deposits are soft rocks that
the people of the villages at the heart of the Cappadocia Region
carved out to form houses, churches, monasteries. Goreme became
a monastic center between 300-1200 AD. First period settlement
in Goreme reaches to the Roman period from Christianity. Yusuf
Koc, Ortahane, Durmus Kadir and Bezirhane churches in Goreme,
houses and churches carved into rocks till to Uzun Dere,
Baglidere and Zemi Valley carries the mystical side of history
today. The Goreme Open Air Museum is the most visited site of
the monastic communities in Cappadocia and is one of the most
famous sites in central Turkey. It is a complex comprising more
than 30 rock-carved churches and chapels containing some superb
frescoes, dating from the 9th to the 11th centuries.
Fairy chimneys of Goreme
Goreme, which hide among fairy chimneys, is the heart of
Cappadocia. First period settlement within the region reaches to
Roman period from Christianity. Ortahane, Durmus Kadir, Yusuf
Koc and Bezirhane churches in Goreme, houses and shafts engraved
from rocks till to Uzundere, Bagıldere and Zemi Valley carries
the mystical side of history today.
Goreme is a wide open air museum, in which there are Fairy
Chimneys and lots of churches. Very interesting churches, which
are within one of the most important centers of Christianity,
Goreme, are under protection.
Goreme is 15 km east of Nevsehir and 5 km west of Urgup
You will meet hidden churches
and cave houses during walking tour in Rose valley
Rose Valley is a large valley located between Goreme and Cavusin
villages, and it is divided into many smaller valleys: Gulludere,
Kizilcukur, Meskendir and Zindanonu valleys. This beautiful
valley gets its name from the rose-colored rock that varies in
hue and intensity depending on time of day, season and weather
conditions. During the easy hiking we will visit several cave
churches, cave houses and cave tunnels.
PS: Rose Valley can be replaced with Ihlara Valley occasionally,
if there is a considerable request for a specific date.
