Goreme National Park, Goreme

#1 of 10 in Parks in Goreme
Get a bird's eye view of the natural rock formations at Goreme National Park. As a World Heritage Site, the park's ancient structures have been protected from development. Many have been left untouched, though some were carved out and used as churches during the Roman period. More recently, some have been transformed into housing and restaurants. The park covers 40 sq km (15.4 sq mi), and while it may seem untraditional, the best way to see it is from above. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride over the entire park and, along with the landscape, you'll likely see dozens of other balloons in the distance. Ask your hotel for a suggestion on who to book with, as there are many companies throughout Cappadocia that organize these rides.

  • With my partner, during a tour in Turkey a stop was precisely Cappadocia, fantastic for the almost lunar landscape with beautiful valleys and churches carved into the rock and inside the beautiful frescoes (sin have been vandalized).

  • This is a unique terrain that can only be seen in Goreme. It's a very different place from other tourist attractions. There are many places to take pictures and lots to see.
