El Nazar church is a bit of a hike from the main road into Göreme and the road is hot and dusty. Good shoes are necessary, but so is a good attitude. We noticed other people who grumbled about the 5 lire per person price for such a small and insignificant church in an area with much better examples. They... More

This conical shaped church is found off a side trail in Zemi Valley and the suprise is that the frescos found inside are well preserved. Worth a brief visit.

The church is reached after a few minutes walk from the road between Göreme and the open air museum. It is nothing spectacular and the frescos are not in the best state of preservation. If you have the time, visit the church, if not, you would not have missed much.

this was a really interesting place to visit and part of the whole excellent experience. So much to see, and so much to do. Certainly not for those with severe disabilities as the terrain would be somewhat difficult. Very hot and dusty so good walking shoes a must and strong factor sun lotion.

From the outside it looks very good and intresting,but when you go inside its very upsetting,it is just a small room,you have to pay 5turkish liras to get in,might sound small but believe me its not worth it
