Welcome to Gökyurt

St Paul is thought to have stayed here on his three Anatolian expeditions and the area has long been a Christian pilgrimage site.

There's one particularly fine church cut completely out of the rock, but no frescoes. The village the cave dwellings are found in is full of ever-smiling farming folk who will literally take you by the hand and lead you to the best of the caves. After you've finished exploring here set out to create your own adventures by taking a walk through the stunning surrounding landscape and looking for more cave dwellings.
