A stunning natural viewpoint and an open air museum, with its 1300 meters Uçhisar is the highest peak in the Cappadocia region. This rock citadel, whose name means “three fortresses”, lies on the Nevsehir-Goreme road, just 7 km east of the city of Nevsehir. Visible from a great distance in many parts of the region, the top of the village offers a spectacular panorama of the plateau, while its core hosts a maze of chapels, monasteries, Byzantine graves, connected to each other by stairs, tunnels and passages. Once in Uchisar, climb the 120 steps up to the Kale, the castle situated on the most beautiful and highest fairy chimney in the whole region. In the 15th and 16th century, the Byzantine army used the peak as a natural fortress, which still retains part of its original structure and rooms, that visitors can admire. From the summit, the breathtaking views of the Erciyes Mountain and Pigeon Valley are one of the most iconic images of Cappdocia.
