The entrance fee is 30 TL, you will be able to enter some of the structures and see some frescoes that are pretty amazing. This a good place to take pictures too!

This place is historical mainly if you are interested in seeing old churches and the drawings that nearly disappeared, otherwise not very interesting for younger children, needs physical power to climb up the caves.

No, not in the centre of town but a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. Wonderful place to walk around and worth paying a little extra to see the Dark Church. A very beautiful place and do not miss it
