Capadoccia, which reflects the harmonization of nature and mankind, is waiting for those who would like to discover this mysterious territory and witness the unique design of nature.
Cappadocia, which was sculpted out of the tuff of the Erciyes and Hasan Mountains through millions of years by sand and water erosion, became the seat of several civilisations, and a silent witness to the cultural history of Anatolia. Cappadocia also covers underground cities. These enchanting and only partially revealed subterranean cities of Cappadocia are believed to have deeper levels awaiting exploration.
The most extraordinary underground cities are in the regions of Kaymakli, Derinkuyu,
Mazi Ozkonak and Tatlarin. The underground cities, for long periods used as sanctuaries,
were recently renovated and made available to visitors.
