Turkey City: Urguype
Colorful town URGYUP (Urgup) lives a more natural life than man-oriented Görem. Until 1923, the town was predominant to the Greeks, from which there are many beautiful buildings scattered around the city. And the tuffing cliffs rummaged right above the city quarters are literally permeated with a network of artificial caves – many of them are used as residential premises, warehouses and stalls for donkeys, which usually notes every dawn throughout Cappadocia. But there are several untouched levels that can be studied with a little big convenience than in the same potion.
- Mosque kebir

- Artificial caves

Deserve mosque Kebir (XIII B.) and seven hundred hundred-meter tunnel, which leads through the subsoil of the rock to the species platform on the other side, Park Temmer (Also known as a hill of desires; Open daily from 8.30 to 18.00; Login – 1 Try) with Seljuk Mausoleum Klyj-Aslan-Turbe (1268 g.), a small madrasa of the same period (now used as a cafe), small City Museum (open from Thursday to Sunday from 8.00 to 17.30, input – 2 TRY), as well as as many as six distillers.
However, the local residents themselves are the best consider Turasan’s wines from Esbelli (Esbelli, 1 km to the north-west of the city center) and inexpensive varieties of cooperative Taskobirlik, whose distortion is located in the old caravansera, also outside the city feature. It is worth remembering that white capadocian wines are clearly better than local red varieties that often get simply mixing local wine material with wines from other regions.
