It is not an overstatement to say that Cappadocia is one of the most beautiful places in the world, a place where nature and history have been blended in perfect proportions. The unique landscape of Cappadocia consists in a vast plateau of soft volcanic stone which wind and water have eroded over the millennia, creating fantastic multicolored landforms. Since prehistory, people have excavated these pinnacles and spires and used them as refuges, residences, storage and places of worship. Today we can admire these astonishing examples of human ability to shape and adapt to the environment.
Being on the route of the Silk Road connecting the Western and Eastern worlds, throughout history Cappadocia has served as a bridge between civilizations. Hittites, Romans, Greeks, Seljuk and Ottomans, have left an incredibly rich cultural heritage: caravansaray, underground cities, dwellings, monasteries and sanctuaries. The rock-hewn churches of Cappadocia, with their incomparable beautiful frescos and rock-cut decorations, constitute a unique artistic and historical testimony to post-iconoclast Byzantium.
A trip to Cappadocia is a dream experience of a lifetime, something absolutely not to be missed!
