Forty Martyrs Church information
This church dates back to the 4th century, and was renamed in the 15th century to commemorate Cappadocian martyrs, now remembered in the fine carvings above the entrance. Services are held here each Sunday, and there's a wonderful inner courtyard. A caretaker is usually on hand to provide access to the church's compact, but beautiful, interior.
