Just 7 km away from Nevsehir, you will find Uchisar a little village where time seems to stand still. Uchisar is famous for its fortress - the highest peak in the region - which offers from its summit breathtaking panoramic views with Mount Erciyes in the distance. Many rooms of the citadel hollowed out into the rock are connected to each other with stairs, tunnels and passages. The fairy chimneys to the west, east and north of Uchisar were hollowed out and used as graves during the Roman period. Inside these rock cut tombs, the entrances of which generally face west, are clines or stone slabs on which the bodies were laid. Many rock cut churches have been discovered not only on the skirts of the castle but also inside it. The reason for this may be the fact that Goreme, having numerous churches and monasteries, is located nearby.
