Places in Cappadocia
Poor old Nevşehir. Surrounded by the stunning countryside of Cappadocia, this provincial capital offers travellers little incentive to linger. According to local lore, if you set eyes on the beautiful view from Nevşehir's hilltop castle, you'll be compelled to stay here for seven years.
