Why Travel to Cappadocia?

The unique landforms in Cappadocia were formed by wind and rain eroding the soft lava layer erupting from the Erciyes, Gullu and Hasan Mountains over the centuries. Cappadocia is a region located in the heart of Anatolia and covers a wide area spread over four cities.

The history of Cappadocia dates back to the Hittites, one of the oldest civilizations in Anatolia and Mesopotamia. Cappadocia had been a living space for people looking for a shelter for protection from the Roman persecution during the early Christian period.

Throughout history, people in Cappadocia have carved rocks and built chapels, churches and houses. They established underground cities to take refuge in wars.

Those who visit Cappadocia today see both the volcanic formations that nature has formed in thousands of years, and the centuries-old man-made structures. A visit to Cappadocia will allow you to experience a rich historical and natural formation that cannot be found in any other part of the world.
