Goreme, Cappadocia || Turkey Destination Highlight

Goreme is located in Cappadocia and is one of the many little towns in which you really need to wander when in the region. The charm as well as the history of the area is gorgeous.

From the Goreme open air museum where the Fairy Chimneys are, to the small locals shops and carpet sellers, Goreme is a colorful delight!

Goreme Open Air Museum

One of Turkey’s Unesco World Heritage Sites, the Göreme Open-Air Museum is an essential stop on any Cappadocian itinerary and deserves a two-hour visit. First an important Byzantine monastic settlement that housed some 20 monks, then a pilgrimage site from the 17th century, this splendid cluster of monastic Byzantine artistry with its rock-cut churches, chapels and monasteries is 1km uphill from Göreme’s centre.

The little town of Goreme is wonderful to wander in as well. The shops that sell fresh dried herbs and spices, delicious Turkish delight, the carpet shops selling newer to very old Turkish Carpets, jewelry shops with Turkish turquoise pieces to drool over..and buy! – there is so much to take in!
