» Uçhisar (Nevşehir), on the top in the Heart of Cappadocia «
Uçhisar is one of the most beautiful places in Cappadocia. The old village is next to the so called "kale", a rock full of caves where people could hide from enemies. Meanwhile many of the historic building have been restored or turned into luxurious hotels. Ther are also many tuff rock cones which had been inhabited until the 1980s.
