Cappadocia Pictures

Take a Virtual Tour of Cappadocia Through the Pictures of Beth Hoffmann

By

Cappadocia is one of the "really, really big" attractions of Turkey. Cappadocia's surreal and volcanic landscape is like no other, a world of shapes formed by soft ash layers eroding faster than harder areas of basalt and andesite, in certain areas forming into conical shapes called fairy chimneys.

The soft tufa/ash was easy to work, and early settlers carved crude caves which were enlarged and enhanced through the many years of occupation of the Cappadocia area.

You can easily visit these structures through a tour from Istanbul or go independently as Beth Hoffmann, the photographer did.
