A town literally carved into the volcanic rock, Goreme is the gateway to the Goreme National Park, a vast UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses spectacular 10th- and 11th-century cave churches. The park itself is known for its chimney rock formations and is very popular with backpackers. It’s also a great area to sample Turkish cuisine and wine.
The rock citadel of Uchisar is a weird and wonderful structure, resembling some kind of Jim Henson creature emerging from a pile of stones. Spend some time exploring its hand-carved hallways and chambers before climbing to the top to admire the surrounding view. Or take it all in from a completely different angle and hire a hot air balloon to transport your Uchisar experience to new heights.
