The Goreme Esentepe viewpoint overlooks the town of Uchisar as well as over the valleys that are scattered with the famous fairy chimneys of Cappadocia. The best panorama of the area, be sure your camera batteries are charged.

Derinkuyu Underground City

The Christians who populated this area created these amazing underground cities when they were fleeing persecution back in the 14th Century. Some of the underground cities date back further than this and all hold an amazing moment of time from our ancient past. Your tour guide will walk you through to show you how these people lived back in these ancient times of trying to flee and hide from persecution.

Selime Monastery

An astonishing rock-cut construction and the largest religious structure in the Cappadocia region with a cathedral-sized church cut directly into the volcanic tuff. Inside, original frescoes can be found although some have been damaged by weather. Signs of early civilizations are also present at the ancient site such as Hittites, Persians, Romans, Early Christians, Byzantines, Seljuk Turks and Ottomans.

Ihlara Valley

The Ihlara Valley’s gorge is the unique home to rock-carved churches and underground dwellings. With nearly 100 in total, they line both sides of the gorge. The location of these churches and houses, hidden in the rocks, with their easy access to water, made them one of the first places for Christians to seek refuge from the Roman Empire.

Pigeon Valley

Pigeon Valley is an area of Cappadocia that the local farmers have created over the years. Local farmers used to farm pigeon manure as they realised it was a rich resource of fertiliser for their crops and soil. So all these pigeon houses have been carved into the rock faces over the centuries. You make the stop to enjoy the view over the valley and the Cappadocia region.

Panorama over Uchisar Castle

In the centre of Uchisar is one of the largest rock formations in Cappadocia – known as the Castle of Uchisar. It is the highest point over Cappadocia so  affords amazing views over the whole region and further onwards to Erciyes Mountains. It is the perfect spot to offer you all the best views over this amazing landscape of Cappadocia. A view you will never forget.
