NEVSEHIR - GOREME HISTORICAL NATIONAL PARK       


Skip Navigation Links.

The Park is located within the provincial boundaries of Nevsehir in the Central Anatolia.

The region with an interesting landscape made of volcanic tuff reveals the significant structures of Byzantine Cathedral architecture and religious architecture. As it is distant from the main roads and rough, it has been a protection place appropriate for those who have desired to seclude for religious reasons. The Monastery life began at the end of the 3rd century and in the beginning of the 4th century and spread quickly. Monasteries, churches, chapels, dining halls and monk cells, stores and wine production areas were carved and ornamented with wall paintings.

Moreover, the settlements such as Urgup,, Avcilar, Uchisar, Cavusini, Yeni Zelve and Goreme are worth seeing.

As mentioned above, the interesting landscape of Goreme made of volcanic tuffs which is indeed Peribacalari (Chimney Rocks) fascinates the visitors.

There are trekking lines established for enabling the visitors to see both natural and cultural values of the National Park. Visitors can accommodate in a number of hotels and pensions within the National Park and around the Park.
