This beautiful Cappadocian village is shifting slowly from yesteryear but remains well beneath the tourist radar. Still known widely by its pre-WWI Greek name of Sinasos, Mustafapaşa is home to some of the region's loveliest examples of typical Greek stone carved–mansion architecture, serving as a reminder of its prosperous past when wealthy Greek-Ottoman merchants made up a sizeable portion of the community. When you've finished admiring the faded grandeur of the facades, the minor rock-cut churches amid the outlying valleys allow a decent dose of natural scenery.
You enter Mustafapaşa at an enlarged intersection, the Sinasos Meydanı, where a signboard indicating the whereabouts of the local rock-cut churches is located. Follow the road downhill and you'll come to Cumhuriyet Meydanı, the centre of the village, which sports the ubiquitous bust of Atatürk and several tea houses.
