Cappadocia is located in the very heart of Turkey and is a region that mostly resembles a sci-fi movie setting. With endless amounts of rock formations, hundreds and hundreds of houses carved out of the mountain slopes throughout centuries. Entire cities, that remind us of true anthills, emerge and hide beneath the ground. Inside the caves, a lot of the christian churches still display Byzantine frescos.

Humans have also left their mark here in the frescoes of Byzantine churches and complex underground cities.' www.lonelyplanet....
