Where did SARICANTA go in CAPPADOCIA ?

Oh,okay.. First I started waking in the streets of Avanos. Avanos is a small town and district of Nevşehir. Avanos is a kind of souvenir centre of Cappadocia region. It is famous for terracotta and making ceramics.

I started my visit Cappadocia with this good saying about life in Turkish language.

Life is like a fairy tale,
Not how long,
Important how good you live.

DERİNKUYU UNDERGROUND CITY

The Turkish word “Derin kuyu” means Deep Well in English language.

There are some briefings in the entrance of Derinkuyu Underground City. Be sure that you read them before getting into.

RED and BLUE sings will guide you in there.

It is not possible to see every part of this underground city. I had read a news bout some underground tunnels from Scotland to Turkey. While I am getting into there, I suddenly remembered the news. It’s so mysterious.

The capacity of this underground city is 30.000 people. The main reason to have them is safety. It is believed that those underground cities were shelters for people live in here.

In the 2nd century, the Christians -came from Jerussalem via Antakya and Kayseri – settle in Cappadocia.

The organized life in this underground city is surprising. Their waste and ventilation is a well-prepared system. It is believed the numbers of those underground cities are more than one thousand.

MUSTAFAPAŞA

One of the most quite places of Cappadocia. It’s old name is Sinasos. I really liked walking on the streets of the village. Like you were always part of this village.

In addition, the boutique hotel which was used as a mansion in Turkish TV series – Asmalı Konak is in this village. The number of people was remarkably rare while walking on the street of Mustafapaşa.

Aigos Kostantin- Eleni Churh. This church is open to worship.
