The Marvels of Cappadocia

Cappadocia is a historical Turkish region whose intimate relationship with ancient Greece cannot be understated. The region is found in several provinces of Central Anatolia region of Turkey.

The regions surrounding mountains including Mount Taurus towards the edge of Black Sea gives it a surreal lunar-like landscape. It is bounded to the south by Cilicia and to the east by Euphrates and Armenian Highlands. Its neighbor to the north is Pontus and to the west is Galatia and Lycaonia.

The area is characterized by fairy chimneys, whose historical and cultural importance along with Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia, led to its inscription into the UNESCO world heritage sites in 1985.

The earliest mention of Cappadocia is seen in the 6th century during the reign of Achaemenid kings such as Darius I and Xerxes. After the Medes and Persians were defeated by Alexander the Great, the region would pass on to become a territory of Greece. Later, the area will see the reign of the Romans, Byzantines and finally the Turks.
