Monk's Valley
There is a rumor that monks lived in seclusion in the region in ancient times. While this information was just a rumor before coming to this region, as soon as you enter the Valley of the Priests, you realize that there is a lot of truth to it. Because this is the quietest and most peaceful part of the Cappadocia region, it guarantees that you can sit here for hours without even having to talk.

There is a gendarmerie area at the entrance of Paşabağı Valley. However, the place where the gendarmerie is located is inside a fairy chimney. In other words, the region has been adopted entirely for its appearance and is intended to be conveyed to other people as such.

Zelve, 5 km from Avanos and 1 km from Paşabağları, is established on the steep and northern slopes of Aktepe. Zelve Ruins, consisting of three valleys, is the place where fairy chimneys are most dense. The fairy chimneys in the valley have pointed tips and wide bodies.
Zelve was one of the important settlement and religious centers of Christians, especially in the 9th and 13th centuries; At the same time, the first religious seminars for priests were given in this region. Zelve is an open valley with a large cave settlement. The small area has fifteen Byzantine-era cave churches and remained a Turkish village until 1960. Today, Zelve is an open-air museum open to the public.
