Cappadocia: land of beautiful horses and strange fairy chimneys

Cappadocia is the land of beautiful horses and strange fairy chimneys that were created by five volcanoes’ lava million of years ago. Those volcanoes covered the entire surface, which turned into huge conical rocks and a fairytale’s landscape.

Turkish tales tell that one upon a time men and fairies lived in Cappadocia. One day, a man and a fairy fell in love and the fairy queen got angry with them. She turned all fairies into pigeons and she locked them in stone’s structures. Then, she punished men to take care of pigeons.

Pigeons still live in Cappadocia and its stone’s mountains are filled with little holes similar to pigeon houses. They provide men with their dung, which is used in agriculture, and men are still taking care of them in places like Pigeons’ valley, between Göreme and Uçhisar.

The most famous picture of Cappadocia is the fairy chimneys. High columns of stone – about 40 metres tall – are crown by a conical rock with strange shapes and their equilibrium almost defies gravity.Holes similar to pigeons houses made in the stone and men live inside them in Cappadocia

Thousands of years of erosion over tufa’ mounds, a volcanic smooth rock, and dark basalt’s stones have created those fairy chimneys (peribacalari), although natives call them castles (kales).

From the 40-metres-tall fairy chimneys to the earth’s depths, older Hittites built unique subterranean cities to escape from their enemies and they were extended and used by chased Christians later.

There are known 40 subterranean settlements in this region, although the most famous are those from Derinkuyu (Deep well) and Kaymakli, which can reach a hundred metres depth.
