Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia

Leave a Comment
One of the most beautiful landscapes in the world is just a short flight from Istanbul - if you've never been, here is a grand introduction...we will feature Cappadocia this summer with many interesting articles.



In a spectacular landscape, entirely sculpted by erosion, the Göreme valley and its surroundings contain rock-hewn sanctuaries that provide unique evidence of Byzantine art in the post-Iconoclastic period. Dwellings, troglodyte villages and underground towns – the remains of a traditional human habitat dating back to the 4th century – can also be seen there.

Ephesus Added to the UNESCO World Heritage List

Leave a Comment
The Majestic and Spectacular Ephesus has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Turkey now offers 14 World Heritage Sites.






Ephesus (Turkey)—Located within what was once the estuary of the River Kaystros, Ephesus comprises successive Hellenistic and Roman settlements founded on new locations, which followed the coastline as it retreated westward. Excavations have revealed grand monuments of the Roman Imperial period including the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre. Little remains of the famous Temple of Artemis, one of the “Seven Wonders of the World,” which drew pilgrims from all around the Mediterranean. Since the 5th century, the House of the Virgin Mary, a domed cruciform chapel seven kilometres from Ephesus, became a major place of Christian pilgrimage. The Ancient City of Ephesus is an outstanding example of a Roman port city, with sea channel and harbour basin.
