Red Valley

Red Valley 位於土耳其 Cappadocia 的 Goreme,鄰近 Goreme Open Air Museum, 在博物館的旁邊有條不起眼的小徑,走過彎彎曲曲的小徑會忽然眼前一亮,山谷內奇石星羅棋佈,林木處處,一些山岩巨石還可以找到不少當地古人開鑿的山洞居所和已廢棄的教堂遺跡。

More About Cappadocia

Cappadocia is a part of central Turkey. Eruptions of several volcanoes (e.g. Erciyes Dag, Hasan Dag) had covered the area with tuff. Erosion dug valleys and created an uncountable number of different shaped rocks. The tuff's ability to store water made the valleys much more fertile than the higher surroundings. After the arrival of the first people, they soon started to dig caves into the soft stone. By the time they developed the ability to dig cities into the underground with tunnels of several kilometers. A sophisticated pipe- and tunnel-system cared for fresh air and water, to enable the people to hide from enemies for a long time. In the 5th century hermits started to settle in the valleys and to paint their caves. In the next centuries more and more hermits and monks arrived and a rich cave-architecture with colourfull wallpaintings developed. The most famous are the churches of Goereme and the Peristrema Valley (=Ihlara Valley) between Ihlara and Selime. Today thousands of tourists from all over the world are visiting the area.
