Artist's Description

One of the most beautiful rock cut churches in Cappadocia, a real “trademark” of this magnificent region, this cap shaped rock is known by the strange name “El Nazar”. It was a Greek-Orthodox church some centuries ago. It is situated in the El Nazar valley, about 800m to the right from the road to the Goreme Open air museum. The floor has been completely destroyed, as has part of the apse. The frescoes show scenes which follow each other in chronological order. This church can be dated to the end of the 10th century.
