» Gökçe/Momoasson, Mamasun - Byzantine Farmsteads in the Tuff Rock «

Close to the village of Gökçe several Byzantine farmsteads (about 10th - 13th century) survived the times. A vast quantity of material had been cut out of the soft tuffrocks, to create an inner courtyard. People entered it through an archway and from here they had access to stables, store rooms, housing spaces and representative rooms. Additionally each farmstead had its own small cave church or chapel, usually with a direct entrance from the farmstead. In 2015 many of the entrances were closed or completely filled with chaff, because the local farmers still use the caves as store rooms.
