I visited Soganli during the last day of my trip in Cappadocia and perhaps this affected my judgment. Although there are frescos and churches dated V-VI century I have to say that this site is definitively less spectacular than most of the other sites in...More

Soganli is a peaceful little village set on a hillside in the Saganli valley. Few and mainly old people live there now as the young have moved out. A beautiful rock cut church lies a short walk away with black frescoes mostly undisturbed by defacement....More

The site is away from the mainstream attractions of Cappadocia and ideally visited with your own transport. There are several rock churches in the site, some with fairly well preserved frescos. It is possible to drive in the site and park almost right in front...More

We arranged a driver to take us on a half-day driving tour of the valley on our way to the airport. The natural setting is absolutely beautiful, and there are fewer tourists here than in more popular locations like Goreme Open Air Museum. The frescoes...More
