Goreme Open-Air Museum

if you only see one thing in Cappadocia, make it this

This World Heritage Site is the star of Goreme, with its collection of Byzantine-era churches and monasteries hewn straight into the rock. Frescoes of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary are remarkably well-preserved because of the low levels of light inherent in rock-cut structures, and one can really get a sense of Goreme's importance as a haven for Christians during the Roman and Byzantine periods. Because of its proximity to Goreme central, it is best to arrive as early as possible in order to avoid tour groups.
