Discover The Göreme Valley Turkey

Located in Cappadocia, the Göreme Valley stretches over 23 acres. Considered to be the largest religious centre in the region, it has been listed as a National Park since 1986. There are eleven churches in the town dug into the volcanic tuff, just like the cave dwellings. For the most part well-preserved, the wall paintings depict scenes from the Old and New Testaments. Inside, the churches vary in size but in general they are all narrow. The largest one is called Tokali Church. It has three distinct sections and its walls are covered with scenes illustrating the life of Christ.
