Cappadocia is a historical region in central Anatolia, Turkey. It is famous for its unusual rock formations, created by the erosive effects of wind and water over centuries. The area is also home to underground cities, which were used as refuges during times of war or natural disaster.
Built by the early Christians in Cappadocia, Derinkuyu is an underground city carved out of volcanic rock and extending more than 8 levels deep. It is one of the largest underground complexes in the world and served as a place of refuge for up to 20,000 people during times of persecution. Today, Derinkuyu is a popular tourist attraction and many visitors marvel at the ingenuity and artistry of its early architects.
