A scenic spot on the outskirts of Goreme National Park, in the center of a town, is connected to the surrounding buildings, like a big sand dune, full of small holes, like ants built.
A fortress excavated on a huge stone, large and small pigeon holes in the mountains, a long time ago, people used pigeon dung as fertilizer for the vineyard. There were huge settlers in the caves in the fortress in the early days, and the fortress was enough for them to store food and resist further invaders. After years of precipitation, it has become a beautiful landscape.
Uchisar Fortress is a well-known attraction in Goreme Open Air Museum. The tour guide introduced it emphatically, but I forgot the words of the tour guide, but the topography of Goreme is really unique and unforgettable.
Uchisar Fortress is actually a fortress dug on a huge 60-meter-high rock, and a small gathering place formed in the center. Large and small caves are densely distributed on the surface of the rock. These are pigeon nests and look strange. The entire scenic spot looks like a big castle from a distance.
We took a bus from Goreme bus terminal to Uchisar Castle. Friends who are not sure which bus can ask the driver. The journey takes less than half an hour, and the cost is 17TL/person. There will be taxis next to the bus, which will be more expensive. It is recommended to take a bus instead of being pulled to take a taxi.
