ORTAHISAR

 

("Middle Fortress")

Ortahisar is another Cappadocian village dominated by a fortress-like rock rising above winding roads. The present-day town is located at the foot of the "fortress," and a complicated network of paths leads to abandoned rock dwellings. In addition to cultivating the land, the inhabitants of Ortahisar earn their living by storing fruits yearlong in the caves cut from the volcanic rock. From the summit of the "fortress," which is accessible by stairs, one can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding area.
