It is in Yeşilhisar district in Kayseri and 34 km away from Ürgüp. It is one of the important areas of Cappadocia with many churches from famous artists of the period and natural beauties. Colored cloth dolls made by village women are unique gifts in the region.

Church of Karabaş was built in between 1060 and 1061. The structure, decorated with different techniques in different times, is among the most important churches due to Soğanlı’s art value. Communion frescoes portraying the gathering of apostles in the abscissa are a rare beauty among the Cappadocia frescoes.

Snake Church near the Church of Karabaş gets its name from the scene of St. George killing a dragon. In the cradle vaulted ceiling, depiction of Christ Pantocrator with red weights is remarkable
