Cappadocia is a geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty.
Lying in south central Turkey, the moonscaped region of Cappadocia is most famous for unique geological features called fairy chimneys. The large, cone-like formations were created over time by erosion of the relatively soft volcanic ash around them.
Past cultures have dug into them to create dwellings, castles and even entire underground cities used as hiding places by early Christians.
