From here you will drive to Taskinpasa Madrasah from the 13th century and then visit Keslik Monastery which has the biggest refectory (monastic dining complex) in the whole of Cappadocia.
After having lunch at a local restaurant you will head to Mustafapasa town which is famous for old Greak Mansions and houses. When you wander down the alleyways of Mustafapasa you will be amazed with the elaborate and beautiful stonework of these houses. Then you will drive to Kaymakli Underground City. So far they have discovered more than 36 underground cities in the region and this is the largest one with its 9 levels cleared and open to adventurous travellers. Legend has it that these, and yet undiscovered underground cities stretch all the way across Cappadocia to Kayseri. Used initially as storage for animals and crops during winter they were developed as shelter for the inhabitants to remain safe during times of war and persecution. From here we will drive back to your hotel.
For lunch you will be invited to a local’s house for the best local cuisine.
