With its amazing landscape of deep valleys and fairy chimney rock formations, Cappadocia appears otherworldly and no doubt one of the most magical destinations on earth. One of the most interesting things about the Turkish city, however, is what lies beneath the surface.

Within these land forms and underground, entire cities were built by early Cappadocians seeking refuge from invading armies. A vast network of complete villages was discovered, with homes, temples, wineries, tombs, and tunnels that allowed people to travel from one place to another without exposing themselves to the enemy.

Visitors to Cappadocia looking to experience cave living at its finest can book a truly unique stay in one of their beautiful cave hotels.
