My wife and I had not heard of this place before; however, our driver brought us here on our return to Urgup from Songali Valley. One only needs to spend about 15 minutes here. The excavated mosaics on the floor were a pleasant surprise and...More

We visited Sobesos on a half-day trip to the Soganli Valley. There are some well-preserved mosaic floors and the ruins of a bathhouse. Worth a quick stop - perhaps 15 minutes - on your way to the Soganli Valley.

It is indeed out of the way of all the other sites in Cappodocia, but I personally felt it was worth the trip to see this excavation in process of an ancient ruin. It feels raw and in it's natural state. Sadly, Turkey has too...More

An unexpected ancient city literally in the middle of nowhere. There are striking Roman mosaics on the excavated level. If you like history, Roman architecture or the peace and tranquility of a rural location go and have an explore.

Yes... there's no entry fee or even some sort of registration- you can just go and walk around. It isn't too extensive but whatever is there- a bathhouse and a church/meeting place is worth seeing with good background info- the mosaic is well preserved.

Mosaics are interesting for their sheer size, and the incongruity of being there but that's about it.

I really loved visiting Sobesos. The mosaics discovered look brand new and it feels like a walk in Roman times. My only concern is; the stones, mosaics, everything is there, open and there seemed to be no protection over the ruins. I thouht this must...More

We've seen Roman bath ruins in California and in England. The novelty here is that these ruins are in the middle of farmland! It was an interesting visit, especially when we travelled with a guide who pointed out the ruins of a church built on...More

Just walk around and explore. Climb up, if you can, look around the rock cut houses and then use your imagination. This is a "not to be missed" experience.
