They left a spectacular heritage to Turkey. You may visit Hattusas Ancient City (Hittite’s Capital) in central Turkey.

Cappadocia became a base and shelter for early Christians due to its geographical advantages. First Christian communities had to hide from Roman authorities since the Christianity was banned by the Roman Emperors.

Cappadocian Christians lived a life of seclusion in the secret churches of Cappadocia. The well-hidden Churches can still be observed in Goreme Open Air Museum, Ihlara Valley, Pasabag Valley and many other places scattered over the unique landscape of Cappadocia.
