These ruins dating to the fourth century were discovered only very recently, in 2002. A lot of area is yet to be escavated. We can see the Roman Bath area with its heating system, the Agora (market place), the parliament and meeting area, the basilica...More

really nothing much to see, not recommended if you are not really into history. bring water to pour over the mosiacs, then it becomes more colorful...but really, there are more interesting things to see in cappadocia

My wife and I had not heard of this place before; however, our driver brought us here on our return to Urgup from Songali Valley. One only needs to spend about 15 minutes here. The excavated mosaics on the floor were a pleasant surprise and...More

We visited Sobesos on a half-day trip to the Soganli Valley. There are some well-preserved mosaic floors and the ruins of a bathhouse. Worth a quick stop - perhaps 15 minutes - on your way to the Soganli Valley.

It is indeed out of the way of all the other sites in Cappodocia, but I personally felt it was worth the trip to see this excavation in process of an ancient ruin. It feels raw and in it's natural state. Sadly, Turkey has too...More

An unexpected ancient city literally in the middle of nowhere. There are striking Roman mosaics on the excavated level. If you like history, Roman architecture or the peace and tranquility of a rural location go and have an explore.

Yes... there's no entry fee or even some sort of registration- you can just go and walk around. It isn't too extensive but whatever is there- a bathhouse and a church/meeting place is worth seeing with good background info- the mosaic is well preserved.

Mosaics are interesting for their sheer size, and the incongruity of being there but that's about it.

I really loved visiting Sobesos. The mosaics discovered look brand new and it feels like a walk in Roman times. My only concern is; the stones, mosaics, everything is there, open and there seemed to be no protection over the ruins. I thouht this must...More
