Goreme - Cappadocia / Turkey


It is famous for the rock-cut churches and Fairy-Chimneys. The tufaceous rocks have been hollowed out into monasteries, churches and houses. Tokalı (Church of the Buckle), Çarıklı (Church of the Sandals), Yılanlı (Church of the Serpent), Saklı (Flidden) churches and the Church of St. Barbara are some of numerous small rock-cut churches which are of particular interest with their structure and frescoes predominantly depicting Biblical scenes. Most of the churches, some of which have been restored, are open to visit.
