Underground Cities in Cappadocia; In the 7th century ,the Christians who had settled in this region were faced with Arabia and Sassanid attacks ,as well as increasing pressure from the Byzantine Empire. In order to protect themselves,they made use of the soft texture of the volcanic rocks by cutting out underground cities.These cities ,which are entered through a narrow passage,are made up various rooms and halls with different functions.With air vents and cisterns,air and water suppiles were sealed with stones shaped like millstones which turned on pivots.Situated in Nevsehir \'s region of Kaymakli,the Kaymakli underground city is made into the form of apatment buildings.On each floor of this seven -storeyed city,there are rooms,depots,a kitchen and a church all connected to each other by narrow passages.The city has been lit today and is open to visit.The Derinkuyu underground city ,in the Derinkuyu area,is 85 m. deep with seven storeys.In comparison to the Kaymakli underground city,the rooms here are larger.The roomsand floorsare all connected to each other.The choir section of a cross-plan church on the lowest floor is situated around a well.There are a depot,kitchen and bedrooms on each floor.The entire underground area has a capacity big enough to shelter a large community..

Goreme Open Air Museum: Goreme was an important Christian centre in the early years of the Middle Ages, was a bishopric administered by Mokissos near Aksaray in the 11th and 13th centuries. Despite the vast numer of monasteries, churches and chapels in the vicinity of Göreme, there are not many inscriptions bearing dates. For this reason, these religious buildings are mainly dated according to the iconography or architectural features.
