Zelve Open Aır Museum

Zelve Open Aır Museum

Zelve Open Air Museum

With its knobbly-topped rock cliffs speckled with cave dwellings, walking through Zelve Open-Air Museum is an experience of the Cappadocia of old. The settlement began life as a monastery in the 9th century and by the 20th century was a thriving village. Due to erosion and rock-fall dangers, the village had to be abandoned in 1952. Now the entire valley is a museum. There are a couple of interesting chapels to see – theÜzümlü Kilise (Grape Church) being the most intact – and a rather picturesque rock-cut mosque. But the real joy of this site is meandering down the cliff side paths, exploring the fire-blackened interiors of the cave dwellings and staring out at the magnificent vistas over the surrounding countryside.
