ROSE VALLEY (KIZILCUKUR)
The Rose Valley is an isolated valley behind Urgup. It has beautiful rock formations with some great hidden rock – carved churches. The most interesting part of this area is the countless tracks connecting the small villages and towns through vineyards and gardens like a spider net. It is always possible to see villagers working in the area and offering grapes, apples or apricots to you.
One of the oldest settlements in the area, Cavusin is situated 2km from Goreme, on the Goreme – Avanos road. The Church of St. John the Baptist offers a panoramic view of the village. This church and its paintings date back to the 5th century, making it the oldest church in the region. It had a large courtyard which is unusual for Cappadocia. However this has eroded away.
MONKS VALLEY (PASABAGLARI)
The best place to see three-headed fairy chimneys. Pasabag, the Pasha’s Vineyard is surrounded by incredible natural rock formations; a spectacular scene
A centre for terracotta works of art since 3000BC, it is a town where you will be invited to visit a traditional pottery workshop set deep into the hillside. The clay, from the Red River passing through the town gives life both to the land and to the local economy.
Uchisar is a troglodyte town situated right in the middle of Cappadoccia. It is named after the enormous piece of rock in the centre of the town, which was once used as a castle. This extraordinary rock is the highest peak of the area with a view of whole of Cappadocia and Erciyes (Argeus) Mountain.
OPEN AIR MUSEUM
Goreme, an important Christian centre in the early years of the middle ages, was a bishopric administered by Mokissos near Aksaray in the 11th and 13th Centuries. Despite the vast number of monasteries, churches and chapels in the vicinity of Goreme there are not many inscriptions bearing dates. For this reason these religious buildings are mainly dated according to the iconography or architectural features.
Devrent Valley is situated on the Northern slopes of Aktepe, 1km from Pasabaglari (monk’s valley) and 5km from Avanos. The ruins at Devrent Valley are spread over three valleys which also house several pointed fairy chimneys with large stems.
