At Cappadocia Cave Dwellings, explore the ancient underground settlements hewn into the soft rocky landscape once used by early Christians to hide from Roman persecutors.

See the well-preserved examples of Byzantine frescoes in cave chapels dug by Christian monks in the 7th century. Spend a night in one of the cave hotels in a nearby village to help get an appreciation for this type of residence.
