Love this church, in easy walking distance from Göreme. It’s very pretty, with an unusual shape which looks like something from my childhood stories. It’s a small charge to go inside but worthwhile. Delightful.

Lovely stroll down to the church, but if you come during off-season, it will be closed. That’s the only reason for the three stars. Have to give a rating. Trying to be neutral.

It’s located on the outskirts of Goreme, this little church it’s worth visiting for very well preserved fresco paintings inside. Walk from town is a good exercise as well.

The church is not protected very well I think, but still you can see fresks just some part of them disappeared. It really has nice view.

El Nazar church is a bit of a hike from the main road into Göreme and the road is hot and dusty. Good shoes are necessary, but so is a good attitude. We noticed other people who grumbled about the 5 lire per person price...More
