The open air museum had lots of examples of churches carved into the rock when the Christian population were persecuted and in hiding. Some of these have amazing frescoes - but we weren't allowed to take any pictures of them :(
In the evening we had dinner with a local family - lots of traditional dishes including the salty yoghurt drink the Turkish love and soup and beans cooked in the traditional way - in pots in a fire pit.
The following day we headed to the underground city - again used by the Christians to hide from persecution - they could stay down there for up to 6 months if needed, but usually were down there for shorter periods.
Then hiked around different rock formations in the area - including the 3 beauties
And the castle rock
