VILLAGE OF CAVUSIN

Like many ancient villages of Cappadocia, old Cavusin was abandoned several decades ago due to avalanches. The current village of Cavusin is located on the road. Old Cavusin, with its rock-cut dwellings and stone houses, had several hermitages. The two most important churches in Cavusin are the Great Basilica dedicated to St. John the Baptist (located on the cliff above the village) and Cavusin Kilise or the "Great Pigeon House" commemorating a visit of the famous Cappadocian Emperor Nicephorus Phocas. The beautiful and elegantly carved facades of the houses of old Cavusin furnish evidence of how impressive the village once was.
