UCHISAR

 

 

 

 

("Distant Fortress")

As the highest point in Goreme, Uchisar offers a marvelous introduction to the region. Excellent examples of various types of volcanic formations found in Cappadocia can been seen from the top of the "fort," a natural rock formation.

 

 The "fort" consists of two enormous rock cones surrounded by a multitude of smaller ones resembling towers. In the cones many rock-cut dwellings have living rooms, kitchens, storage areas, and stables carved at various levels. Due to avalanches, the houses at the foot of the "fort" are no longer inhabited.
