1-Cappadocia Daily Tours-North
day itinerary which is taking you to the north part of the
region is definitely the best way to see many highlights of
Cappadocia in one day.
the day visiting Devrent Valley, also known as
"Imagination Valley", this is the most surreal-looking
next stop will be Pashabagi called also the Monks Valley
because Christian hermits chose to locate hermit cells
and churches in these three-headed pinnacles symbolic of
the Holy Trinity, it’s possible to see all the stages in
the formation of fairy chimneys at this spot.
Proceed to Avanos (Venessa) the pottery
centre of Cappadocia, this village is set on the banks
of the Kizilirmak/Red River. The river gets its name
from the red clay it deposits. You can watch the potters
at work using kick wheels, the technique which has
remained unchanged for generations.
Continue to Göreme Open Air Museum. The world’s most
important Byzantine cave churches are found in these
once remote valleys where monks and nuns pursued
monastic life from the 3rd century on. Here you can see
the best preserved Byzantine cave wall paintings and
frescos from the Iconoclastic period through to the end
of Seljuk rule. Icons with scenes from the Old Testament
and the New Testament above portraits of Church Fathers
and saints depict the structure of the Byzantine
Panoramic view point Esentepe. With a
spectacular view over Göreme from Esentepe
see the complete view of
Goreme valley and Goreme village: fairy chimneys, rock
formations and cave houses.
End your day with Uchisar Castle. This tall rock, the
highest point of the Goreme region, is a 25-floor
beehive of cave rooms forming an underground-type city
reaching into the sky. It was used as a citadel during
Roman, Byzantine and Seljuk times. The view of the
Cappadocian countryside from here is just brilliant.
