A visit to the ceramic & tile centre to see how the ceramics made by hand. After lunch, we visit the famous Goreme Open Air Museum to see the best examples of Byzantine art in Cappadocia. People of Goreme, at the heart of the Cappadocia Region, realized that these soft rocks could be easily carved out to form houses, churches, monasteries.
These Christian sanctuaries contain many examples of Byzantine art from the post iconoclastic period. These frescoes are a unique artistic achievement from this period.
You visit a carpet cooperative, where you'll see how exquisite Turkish carpets are hand-woven.
We complete the tour with a panoramic view of the valleys of Cappadocia.
