Turkey: Cappadocia – Sunset at the Uchisar Castle

And one more cave rock tower in Cappadocia – Uchisar. Uchisar is situated at the highest point in Cappadocia near Goreme, and is visible from quite far away, the castle tower is almost perfectly cylindrical, rising over 60m/200ft from the top of the hill. The rock tower has dozens of rooms cut into the rock that are interconnected via stairs, tunnels, and passageways. The castle also has numerous underground passageways and rooms that were once residential areas in Byzantine times – around 1,000 people lived in the castle. Come here at sunset and the whole pyramid flows in the golden sun light with panorama of Cappadocia unfolding in front of your eyes.
