"Goreme Open-Air Museum" Goreme Things to Do Tip by June.b

Goreme Things to Do: 251 reviews and 622 photos

We did not book this as a tour because the Goreme Open Air Museum is walking distance from our hotel in Goreme (Travellers' Cave Pension), so we did it on our last day in Goreme.

We walked about 2 kms. in approx. 15 minutes, paid TL10 at the entrance.

The Goreme Open Air Museum is a huge complex of rock churches and chapels covered with frescoes.

Most of chapels date from the 10th to the 13th century, the Byzantine and Seljuk periods, and many of them are built on an inscribed cross plan with a central cupola supported by four columns.

Address: Goreme, Cappadocia
Directions: Walking distance from Goreme Town

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
