Paşabağı - Cappadocia
These fairy chimneys in pasabagi are unique to this valley and feature bizarre large toadstool like caps which protect the rest of the chimney from erosion. The area was formerly a monastic retreat and used to be known as “monk’s valley” and features a rock cut church dedicated to St Simeon.
Pictured above is the rock cut St Simeon’s chapel.
Pasabagi can be found on the road between Zelve open air museum and Goreme. There is no entry fee.
