Situated at the highest point in the region Uchisar is a small sleepy town, but makes an excellent base from which to explore the unique Cappadocian landscape.


Uchisar is well-known for its extraordinary rock formation towering above the landscape which is visible for miles, but incredibly, has escaped the tourist masses experienced by its neighbours Goreme or Avanos.

Spread out at the base of the fortress, where the top of the citadel provides a magnificent panorama of the surrounding area, Uchisar is a place where time altogether stands still.

A good way to plan a day sightseeing would be to travel to Dovecote Valley and then onward to the valley of Goreme. Here you can visit the Church of John The Baptist at Cavusin - the oldest surviving church in Cappadocia.
Cresting above the valley are rocky channels that look more like pink and yellow sand dunes, Uchisar is a good place to begin a walking tour because it's down hill in every direction.

You will also notice Pigeon Valley, named for it's mass of nesting holes painted white to attract the birds and their valuable droppings. In days gone by the pigeon holes were hollowed out to gather droppings could help them fertilise their fields.
