Cappadocia is unique. It covers the provinces of Aksaray, Nevsehir,
Nigde, Kayseri and Kirsehir in the Middle Anatolian region.
Two ancient volcanoes mark the western and eastern boundaries of a region known for
its curious volcanic landscape that has been relentlessly carved by nature and by the
people who have lived here. 'Fairy chimneys, cones and strange rock formations have
been sculpted by wind and rain while subterranean towns were excavated by a populace
seeking shelter from the conquerors and would-be conquerors who criss-crossed the wide
open steppes of the Central Anatolian Plateau.
