You can see the evolution of the decoration styles in this small church. It is just after the monastery. The only decoration had been the lines and simple figures in same red tone over the yellowish rocks first. Then, oil paintings had been discovered and more colors had been used. In St. Barbara Church, decorations of both eras can be seen.
This church is all carved but with the former decorations, it seems like it is masonry.

Address: Goreme Open Air Museum
