The name itself, “Cappadocia” means ‘the land of beautiful horses in ancient times, the region was known for its equestrian offering (Horses) which remain important to the locals who consider Cappadocia their “home”.
Millions of years ago, a series of volcanic eruptions took place that shook the whole Central Anatolian region; the thick ash solidifying into soft rocks, called tuff, eroding with wind and water, shaped and formed what we now know as the Cappadocia Fairies or “Cotton Castles” cutting through 3 provinces - Nevsehir, Kayseri, and Nigde.
There are several underground cities, subterranean settlements that were made possible thanks to the flexibility of the soft rocks, some connected by a network of tunnels, largely used by early Christians. The village of Göreme in Cappadocia serves as the region’s main tourist attraction that encompasses the best-known religious complexes in the area dating back from the 9th to 11th century, even enlisted in the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.
However, although tourists can visit, a lot of the land in the area is private property with a small number of Cappadocian Settlements inhabiting today. In addition, visitors may also attend concerts that are usually held in the surrounding caves including week-long festivals which showcase choirs and orchestras.
