  • Avanos

    This little village in the north region is famous by its ceramics with floral blue, white and black designs.Here you can visit the artisans in their caves making the jars, plates... and learn all the process, and buy some stuff too.

  • Uchisar

    Meaning "the 3 castles" this location is the first you meet if you start the visit in Nevsehir.Is easily recognisable for its huge rock in the middle and the dove nests valley (pigeon houses carved in the rock) outside the village.

  • Zelve

    In this area you can find rock formations called "Fairy chimneys" and a town carved in huge rocks forming enormous caves that you can visit (now is not inhabited).There are houses, churches, mills, warehouses... all in caves.

  • The Family

    In Urgup you can see this famous rock formation called "the family" because it is said to represent a father, a child and a mother. You'll find souvenir stalls all around the place.
