Cappadocia: the site of nature’s wonderful formations, a central Anatolian and world heritage with a history dating back to 3000 B.C
This awesome geography where history and nature intertwines has been host to many civilizations throughout the centuries. The unique volcanic landscape of the region took shape as a result of the erosion of the volcanic layers which spread through the area with the eruption of Erciyes, Hasandag and Güllüdag mountains about 60 million years ago.
