Turkey … a country with a long history and beautiful scenic views (17)

Welcome back!!

Leaving the small sleepy town, we headed to the Goreme National Park where we visited the Goreme Open-Air Museum.

The Museum resembles a vast monastic complex composed of scores of refectory monasteries placed side-by-side, each with its own fantastic church

Paintings on the wall of the rocks.  Well… have a look at the photos and enjoy them. No words can better describe all this. =)

  1. How amazing. The paintings are superb and it’s incredible how they build churches, home, etc. right into the mountains. I’m sure they stand the test of time.
