What is Cappadocia famous for?
Cappadocia is famous for the fairy chimneys: Millions of years ago, Mount Erciyes convulsed the surrounding landscape with a torrent of lava, smothering hundreds of miles. Later floods, rain and wind sawed away at the table of lava, creating deep valleys and fissures, slopes turned into cones and columns, “fairy chimneys” in colors ranging from pink to green and yellow. Lakes and rivers in the area, especially the Kızılırmak River, contributed to the erosion of this layer of tuff stone, giving the region its fascinating shape. And from the ancient times, men have hallowed out these soft rocks, and they have made countless cave churches, chapels and monasteries.
Cappadocia is also famous for rock churches and underground cities carved out of the rock from early Christians. The area of Ürgüp, Göreme and Zelve is an open-air-museum of churches and hermit dwellings, underground cities are located at Kaymakli and Derinkuyu.
