Highlights of Cappadocia.

Cappadocia is in a semi-arid region in central Turkey. It is known for its distinctive “fairy chimneys” These are tall, cone-shaped rock formations clustered in Monks Valley, Göreme and elsewhere. Other notable sites include Bronze Age homes carved into valley walls by troglodytes known as cave dwellers.Later these were used as refuges by early Christians. The 100m-deep Ihlara Canyon houses numerous rock-face churches.

Some caves are now hotels in towns such as Ürgüp and Ortahisar. Other historical attractions include the Göreme Open Air Museum. This is a monastic centre with stone-cut Byzantine churches ornamented with frescoes, and the multileveled Derinkuyu and Kaymakli underground cities.

The craggy Üçhisar Castle sits on top of the highest land formation in the region. The castle offers views from the summit, while hot-air balloons survey the area from the sky.

Rugged, multicoloured canyons such as Rose Valley are favoured for hiking. A major wine producer, Cappadocia is also home to many vineyards.
