During the Middle Ages, the Byzantine carved hundred of churches out of the soft the malleable rock and sheltered themselves from armies of the Abbasid Caliphate in refuges descending hundreds of feet into the earth. Between 9th and 11th centuries, many of the churches were lavish decoreted with frescoes, many of which can still be seen. We will start our tour with a visit to Keslik Monastery, which houses the well-preserved 9th century Chapel of St. Stephen, several refectories and the Archangel Chapel; and Cemil Village, home to descendents of the village’s earliest Orthodox Christians. Our next stop is Mustafapasa (Sinasos), an ancient Greek town with its spectacular old Greekhouses: very fine examples of late Greek settlements and architecture. Further stops include Ayvali and Taskinpasa, a 900 years old village thats how sits Seljuk roots in its Medrese (theologicalschool) and a mosque.
