The oldest name for Turkey is Anatolia and it means ‘’where the sun rises’’ in Greek and Greeks were among ancient Cappadocians in the history. In South 2 tour, first visit is Sinasos Village that were inhabited by Ottoman Greeks. Sinasos is as interesting as Ürgüp and Goreme but it is less well known therefore a better choice for those seeking authenticity.
Keslik Monastery is the second stop and it is thought to be carved in 6th or 7th centuries and decorated with frescoes depicting Jesus’ and Mary’s life.
Next destination is another interesting village called Taskinpasa. You will visit a mosque and a 14th century madrasah which is decorated with the most beautiful examples of Seljuk masonry art.
Then stop at a restaurant for a local Anatolian lunch. After lunch drive to Soganli. Soganli is a peaceful little village set on a hillside in the Soganli Valley. It is a pretty and a peacuful valley with gardens and various trees growing near the river bed. There is a designated path that goes around the valley (around 4-5km). Along the path there are various churches to be visited. Then visit the Church of Cemil (Greek-orthodox church) built just before the World War 2.
Final destination is mysterious Kaymakli Underground City in which Cappadocians did create a very complex shelter by digging volcanic tuff level after level. You will walk through 18 interconnected tunnels while your guide will inform you about the modes of communication, locks, traps, food/water storage, etc. everything makes you wonder how life could have been at those times in history.
