Know More about this tourYour day begins by visiting the Fairy Chimneys in Ürgüp. Here you see the most famous family of fairy chimneys: mother, father and daughter! These are identified as the official symbol of both Ürgüp and Cappadocia.
Next we proceed south to the Keshlik Monastery . This monastery complex, situated in an amazing green valley, contains the Church of the Archangel and the Chapel of Saint Stephen. There is also a huge dining area, living quarters, a pool of sacred water as well as a refectory.
Next on our agenda is Sobessos a newly discovered archaeological site, with excavations still underway. This once was a wealthy Roman-Byzantine city. Currently this is the largest site ever discovered in the region. The remains of a church, tombs, a bath and Roman mosaics have already been uncovered.
Shahinefendi is our next stop , it is an authentic central Anatolian village at the foot of a table mountain where you can watch villagers going about their daily chores around their homes and in the fields.
The Church of the Forty Martyrs, situated in a rock pinnacle, is interesting to visit, and this once again links this region to its Byzantine past.
Next stop will be Soganli Valley where people have built homes in the rock cones. It is possible to enter 10 different churches with reasonably well preserved wall paintings dating from the 10th to the 13th centuries here .The locally made doll is the emblem of the village. A traditional lunch will be served in this local village.
Proceed to Tashkinpasha. The Medrese building and the nearby mosque and tombs are definitely the best examples of Seljuk architecture in this district. Here village houses traditionally have stables on the ground floor to keep the upper rooms warm.
Later you will have another stop at Mustafapasha Village . This town remained predominantly Christian throughout the Seljuk and early Ottoman periods, although the Muslim population increased from then on. Some outstanding examples of old stone Greek houses rich in decoratively carved symbols are here.
Amazingly it is still possible to walk into some buildings which have the original paintings on the walls, and the town is home to the remains of the largest concentration of modern churches in the region.
