The clay, which comes from the Red River passing through the town, gives life both to the land and to the local economy.

Goreme Open Air Museum: Goreme was an important Christian centre in the early years of the Middle Ages, was a bishopric administered by Mokissos near Aksaray in the 11th and 13th centuries.

For this reason, these religious buildings are mainly dated according to the iconography or architectural features.

This extraordinary rock is the highest peak of the area with the view of whole Cappadocia and Erciyes (Argeus) Mountain.
