  • Walk from Goreme between valleys, about 2 km. and you will find this beautiful isolated Church. The entrance fee is a fee 5 Tl, but worth it, the guardian dear tells paintings really well kept and then offers tea, as welcoming as almost all Turks met in our weeks.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful picturesque Church in the rock vineyard dates back to the late 10-beginning of 11 century. Easily find the road sign, turn right in the Valley with a road leading from the Göreme Open-air museum. Church of El Nazar called the Church does self-denying. The entrance ticket costs 5 lire. Murals inside survived well enough compared to other churches, but still badly damaged, confused faces. On the walls of the Church depict scenes from the life of Jesus Christ-Christmas, Epiphany, resurrection of Lazarus, the entry into Jerusalem, the crucifixion, the resurrection, the Ascension. Scenes of the Annunciation, visitation, Mary Elizabeth, Candlemas.

  • 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.
