Even if you're not staying in Goreme, you really should go visit this. The Goreme open air museum is the most visited of the monastic settlements in Cappadocia, and after a visit, it's not hard to see why.

There are at least a dozen (probably more) old churches here. The churches are built into the rock, many of wich contain fascinating frescoes painted inside.

Also, included in the price of the museum is an impresive 2 story church about 50m back down the road on the opposite side. So hang on to your ticket stub.

Directions: Walk 1km or so up the road going to Urgup from Goreme. Alternately, there are scooters for rent in Goreme.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
