Carved Houses and Churches
Next to the famous churches located in the Open Air Museum of Goreme, the whole landscape of Cappadocia is dotted with houses and rock-cut chapels. The area is interestingly enough very rarely visited by tourists. Many of the houses and churches can only be accessed by climbing harnesses. Many come to exploit them and to practice their favorite adventure sport besides having the pleasure of accessing spaces not inhabited for years. Such a visit is fascinating and we can get a clear idea of how the ancient cavemen and the early Christians must have lived in these cold lands. Just a warning: Before accessing any of these buildings it is advisable to enquire in Göreme or another nearby town on the safety and condition of the buildings.
