Trip to the Göreme Open Air Museum

Trip to the Göreme Open Air Museum, Turkey

Located a short distance out of Göreme town, the Göreme Open Air Museum is a well-preserved selection of cave houses, monasteries and churches, which date back to the 10th century. 

Laid out as a monastic complex, the museum consists of several churches and refectories set into the rocks and fairy chimneys, with exceptionally well-preserved frescoes on the walls.

When exploring the site, you will see how the rocks were carved into places to work, eat, cook and sleep, and also witness a very different style of fresco than can be found elsewhere.
