One of the thousands of cave dwellings in Cappadocia. With the outer layers of rock now washed away by erosion, one can see the honeycombed structure of tunnels and rooms that likely held a small village. The easily carvable rock, called tufa, was home to over 3000 cave homes, churches and monasteries.
