Photographer's Note

The Goreme Open Air Museum is almost in the centre of Goreme and worth walking to or from, or even both ways, via the Evil Eye church and Love Valley. This section has a dozen or so churches and monasteries hidden in the rocks. Unfortunately photography was banned in all of them, thanks to indiscriminate use of flash by mostly clueless tourists. My favourite was the Dark Church (also known as the Black Church) and you can see an example of the magnificent interior here:

The Buckle Church (Tokali Kilise) was another good one:
