About Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia has natural wonders that are not to be found anywhere else on earth. The area has a unique panorama of pinnacles, known as fairy chimneys, and canyons, as well as the Ihlara Valley, underground cities and archaelogical marvels that make it one of Turkey's most important tourist destinations.



Formed by an unusual geological phenomenon, people have tunnelled into the soft volcanic rocks and used the fairy chimneys as houses and churches, many of which are decorated with frescoes. Indeed, there is evidence in Cappadocia of civilisations that are thousands of years old.

On the historic Silk Road, the region is linked to the Kizilirmak River and for centuries was visited by differnt people and civilisations. Today it hosts visitors from across the world.

Mystical but also tranquil, it offers the unique pleasure of hosting meetings in luxury hotels and then staying in boutique hotels. The region's grapes make wines worth tasting and there is the opportunity to fly in a balloon to see this unmatched natural beauty from the air.
