This is a must see and a nice stop along the highways. The monetary is nicely planned and laid out - I was impressed by how well preserved the fresco is, and the art was astonishingly beautiful. The highlight: the world's only smiling Mary.

This is another Cappadocian stone edifice, originally a church and monastery. The chapel has extremely well preserved and beautiful paintings with better color and detail than many of the more well known sites. Not crowded and very pleasant staff.

Off the beaten track a bit, but A MUST if you're in to frescoes. Really well preserved in an amazing monastery. Entry only 5TL, and no crowds.

We went for a day trip to Nigde to see what it had to offer and this site was by far the favourite. What an impressive monastery. Huge, amazing design, makes you wonder how they did it thousands of years ago. There is a small...More
