Crazy Cappadocia, a place where Nature seems to have toyed with fantastic landscape experiments, showcases volcanic cones that soar over colorful palates of clay and tufa. People hollowed out the rock, and their chimney shaped cave houses rival any architect’s imagination. During Rome’s invasion, more industrious villagers built entire complexes that delve as much as eight stories underground.

Dovecotes - rockfaces riddled with holes to attract nesting pigeons, valuable for their fertilizer-rich droppings.
Uncircumcised volcanic cones
Builders carve houses into the fairy chimneys of Volcanic rock and tufa, a soft clay that hardens in air.
