Discover Cappadocia Turkey

Lying in the heart of Central Anatolia, the Cappadocia region is one of the unmissable stops on a trip to Turkey. Its very unusual geographical set-up has engendered a rather spectacular phenomenon: a rugged landscape with a near-lunar shape, a string of ravines, craters and outgrowths. Among the most prized attractions are the enchanting 'fairy chimneys', basalt cones capped with tuff that the wind, rain, and sand have patiently wrought. This country has also taken advantage of a fertile volcanic soil good for wine growing. Göreme Valley is dotted with homes and troglodyte churches in charming rocky villages, and you can enjoy the proverbial hospitality of the Turkish people and treat yourself to some of the best wine in the country.
