Language: English
Available in:»Français»English»Español»Pусский
Analogue only: عربى, 

In a spectacular landscape, entirely sculpted by erosion, the Göreme valley and its surroundings contain rock-hewn sanctuaries that provide unique evidence of Byzantine art in the post-iconoclastic period. Dwellings, troglodyte villages and underground towns -the remains of a traditional human habitat dating back to the 4th century- can also be seen there.
