Hallaç Monastery, Ortahisar
According to recent researches this is the big residence of a wealthy family. From the big courtyard you can enter several rooms. One contains a big church with 5 domes and a funeral chapel. In the apse is a fresco, dated to the 13th century, which is the only indication to date the residence. Singular in Cappadocia is the 1.5m high sculpture on the wall left above the entrance.
