Pancarlik Valley, one of Cappadocia‘s many under-visited valleys. The scenery is beautiful and the path takes you through undulating ridges of pink and white rock, a patchwork of vineyards and olive and apricot trees.
The valley houses the beautiful 10th century Pancarlik Church which is dedicated to St Theodore. Superb frescoes - portraits of saints and scenes from the life of Christ - adorn the flat ceiling in the nave. These figures are painted on a green background, a colour rarely used by the artists of Cappadocia.
