LOCATIONS IN AKSARAY

  • Güzelyurt

Located 45 kilometers from the center of Aksaray and 15 kilometers from the Ihlara Valley, Güzelyurt is home to Greek houses dating back 100 to 200 years. These structures, half-carved into the rocky terrain and featuring ornate façades, represent the most exquisite examples of Cappadocian architecture. A significant location in the history of Christianity, Güzelyurt beckons film producers with its cave towns, traditional Byzantine buildings, churches, monastery, Ihlara Valley, and fairy chimneys.

  • Ihlara Valley

The second largest canyon in the world, Ihlara is a blend of nature, history, arts and culture, with churches and chapels situated within a verdant landscape. Flanked by steep rocky cliffs on both sides, the narrow valley has a stream running through it and gardens and orchards clustered densely along its edges. The valley is home to a large number of churches dating back to the early Christian era carved into the rock walls .

  • High Church (St. Analipsis Church)

High Church offers one of the best views of the Güzelyurt district, looking out upon Hasan Mountain in a breathtaking panorama. The church is built atop a rocky formation, which includes a Byzantine-era chapel.

  • Sofular Village

The historical ambience of Sofular village is created by its ancient houses carved from the rock. 

  • Lake Acıgöl

Acıgöl, a caldera lake, is located near the Tatlarin underground complex. This has three entrances, two original and one modern, as well as a church.

  • Salt Lake

A striking symbol of purity and natural beauty, the unique spectacle of Salt Lake suggests a nail-biting chase across the white salt plains …
