citadel, built both as a defense and as a settlement, is
situated 6km from Urgup, on the road to Nevsehir. Typical
examples of the area's civilian architecture can be found
among the houses skirting the citadel. The sides of the
valleys are littered with carved out storage areas used for
preserving local products such as apples and potatoes, as
well as oranges and lemons brought from the Mediterranean.
Very interesting churches and monasteries can be found in
the surrounding valleys. Among these are, Sarica church,
Cambazli church, Tavsanli church, Balkan Deresi church and
Hallac Dere monastery.
