About Cappadocia

The Cappadocia region is the place where nature and history are most beautifully integrated in the world. While geographical events were creating the Fairy Chimneys, people carved houses and churches into these fairy chimneys, decorated them with frescoes, and carried the traces of thousands of years old civilizations to the present day.

Strabon, one of the writers of the Ancient Period during the reign of Roman Emperor Augustus, states the borders of the Cappadocia Region as a wide region extending to the Taurus Mountains in the south, Aksaray in the west, Malatya in the east and the Eastern Black Sea coast in the north in his 17-book ‘Geographika’ (Anatolia XII, XIII, XIV).

Today’s Cappadocia Region is the area covered by the provinces of Nevşehir, Aksaray, Niğde, Kayseri and Kırşehir. The rocky Cappadocia Region, which is a narrower area, consists of Uçhisar, Ürgüp, Avanos, Göreme, Derinkuyu, Kaymaklı, Ihlara and its surroundings.
