Goreme Things to Do: 250 reviews and 618 photos
The bigger, better known and most excavated of the underground cities, Derinkuyu truly is a 'you have to see it to beleive it' type of place.
It is a veritable underground city (well...as the name would imply), complete with stables, kitchens, living quarters, a church/chapel, dungeon and a grave. They even had big rolling stones to block off passageways from invaders. Also there were many ventilation shafts so people could breath, but would also be used to relay messages from floor to floor.
Directions: In village of the same name, 30km south of Nevsehir.
