An amazing little Cappadocian town, whose development has adapted itself to its bizarre geology, Ortahisar is a marvel that's not yet on the usual tourist radar.
Ortahisar is surrounded by Turkey's main lemon producing region. Which is easily seen when you note how many lemon storage areas there are.
Imagine a geological formation that looks like a chimney in the middle of a town, attached to which are dozens of traditional houses, piled up one on top of the other, half built, half cave - and all of this in one of the most fascinating areas of Turkey! This is what you'll see at Ortahisar which, despite its natural beauty, is still somehow, astonishingly, off the tourist route.
