The Derinkuyu underground city is an ancient multi-level underground city in the Derinkuyu district in Nevşehir Province, Turkey, extending to a depth of approximately 60 meters. It is large enough to have shelter as many as 20,000 people together with their livestock and food stores. It is the largest excavated underground city in Turkey and is one of several underground complexes found throughout Cappadocia. The underground city at Derinkuyu could be closed from the inside with large stone doors. Each floor could be closed off separately.

Ihlara Valley, is a 16 km long gorge cut into volcanic rock in the southern part of Cappadocia, following several eruptions of Mount Erciyes. The Melendiz Stream flows through the valley. Ihlara Valley consists of 14km along the north-south Melendi River, which runs from Selime to Ihlara village. Sixteen of the valley’s 105 churches are open to visitors, and most of these are within 1km of the official valley entrance in Ihlara.

While in Ihlara, visit Belisirma Village inside Ihlara Valley, which is located in the centre as well as Güzelyurt Village, which was a prosperous Ottoman-Greek town specializing in farming and goldsmithing.
