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.
