  • See Eric H's review which covers all the bases. This a good way of seeing the far more interesting Hidden Church once you have met the guardian. Having seen what El Nazar church church was like before...  more »
  • This church is in the Zemi valley and you need to walk because cars are not allowed but it is not far. The entrance is 5 liras, if you have a museum card it is free.The frescos are very well protected...  more »
  • El Nazar church is a bit of a hike from the main road into Göreme and the road is hot and dusty. Good shoes are necessary, but so is a good attitude. We noticed other people who grumbled about the 5 l...  more »

  • I loved this little church off the road but be ready for a short hike. It will take you 20 minutes at a leisurely stroll to arrive. However, the frescoes are worth the walk. Also, there is a 5-10TL charge per person to go inside the church.
  • A small church, ticket costs 10 TL.
  • The first Christian communities appeared in Cappadocia in the 2nd century AD. The reason was simple-intensified persecution of the early Christians. Underground cities (particularly monasteries) began to emerge in the IV century thanks to the monks of these communities. As a result, by the end of the first Millennium was built around 3 thousand cave churches and hermitages. All the churches were richly decorated with colored frescoes. Those that have survived, dated back to the 9th-11th centuries. Not all my images are preserved, so the second photo site with you guys

Where to stay in Goreme

As a popular tourist destination, Göreme offers plenty of accommodations, many appropriately "cave-themed." Options range from hostels and guesthouses to mid-market and upscale hotels. If you're feeling adventurous, opt to sleep in a cave here. The level of luxury varies among cave rooms, but you can expect them to be quite humid and damp. Just outside of the main attraction of cave churches and away from the volume of visitors in the Cappadocia area, you'll find boutique hotels as well as budget accommodations and hostels. Practice your bargaining skills in advance, and you're sure to land a better deal. Be aware that theft has been reported in Goreme and the surrounding areas, so lock your hotel doors and windows.
