Church Valley

(Göreme) 
31 August
The Church Valley  is located approximately 2 kilometres to the east of Göreme village. This ancient Christian settlement is an open-air museum to visit. The Christians of Kayseri caved the soft tuff material and by this means built numerous chapels, churches and residential houses. Most of the buildings date from the time between the 10th and 13th century; few of them were utilised by Greek Christians till the 20th century. Only some colourful wall paintings are still in a good condition and depict scenes from the Bible and Jesus' life. In the older cave churches red line ornaments prevail. Church Valley (Göreme)
