  • Kapadokya Yürüyüş Yolu, 50650 Göreme/Ürgüp/Nevşehir

There are many monk cells, churches and chapels in this valley, located between Göreme and Çavuşin. These churches show early period characteristics and they are not rich in art. However, symbolism is more common. Ornaments before Iconoclasm period can be seen in the Church of John the Baptist which is located in Güllüdere Valley. Holy Cross Church is located on a high hill in Kızılçukur Valley. Magnificent Latin and Maltese cross reliefs can be seen on the ceiling of the church.

There are no ornaments except a few red patterns in the Columned Church which was constituted by carving the rocks smoothly. Uzumlu Church (Church of St. Nikhitas) is located in the entrance of Kızılçukur Valley, 1 km away from the road. The church has single abscissa and nave. It got its name from the grape figures on the roof of the entrance.
