Marvel at the pointed “fairy” chimneys in the famous cave town of Zelve, located in Turkey’s Cappadocia region. This mini-city, built directly into the ruddy-colored stone cliffs, served as an important religious area during the 9th and 13th centuries. Today, the former seminaries and churches make a popular tourist attraction, with visitors seeking out the “open-air museum” of honeycombed dwellings year-round. Although not as famous as its sister site, the Goreme Open Air museum, the Zelve site appeals to visitors for its easy circular trail, well-preserved frescoes and more peaceful ambiance.
