HIGHLIGHTS OF FULL DAY MTB TOUR 1


GOREME OPEN AIR MUSEUM
Goreme was known, in the ancient times, as Korama. The first references to it are in the early 7th c Acts of St Hieron, a 3rd C. saint who was a native of Matianoi, or the modern Maccan. Goreme is an amphitheatre of ample portions surrounded by steep cliffs leading to a pleasant, verdant valley, which puzzles every single visitor, by the interesting access to many of the caves. The place we refer as the Goreme Open Air Museum is located in a small part of the whole valley, and right next door to the modern village of Goreme. It must have been such a convenient place to dwell that Goreme acted as one of the most important monastic settlements in the early Christian ages.

THE DARK CHURCH
Goreme Open Air Museum has so many churches, monasteries, chapels and refectories carved in nearly the same century. Some of these churches painted in different periods with different techniques. The Dark Church has the best frescoes of Cappadocia, maybe Turkey !!! The art is living on the walls of the Dark Church.

ZELVE OPEN AIR MUSEUM
The ancient town of Zelve lies in three adjacent valleys with buildings carved into the steep sides of the cliffs. The deserted cave dwellings and rock-cut churches give a feeling of an Open Air Museum, which is the right name for the site.
