Güvercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley) - Uchisar

Right below the Uchisar Castle, the connecting link between Goreme and the Uchisar lies the Pigeon Valley. The people of this area used to make pigeon houses in the nooks and crannies that the hilly area provided, to harvest the pigeon excreta to use it as a fertilizer. These pigeon houses were painted white to attract the birds, and the entire landscape is full of such areas with white stone-faces with black holes peeping out at you. These hollowed out the dove-cuts make for a unique and intriguing landscape that you can easily hike through.

Üçhisar Castle - Uchisar

The rock of this particular area is of a kind that is malleable and easily crafted. Thus the churches as well as the Uchisar Castle rather than being erected like buildings are structures crafted out of and into the rock faces and the mountainous geography. Uchisar is the highest point in the region and the castle that has been hollowed out into the rock provides excellent views of the region below with Mount Erciyes in the background, seeing tiny holes in the rocks and also numerous fairy chimneys on the land below. Walking through the dark and cool rooms of the castle, up and down stairs cut out of rock, the castle seems like a dwarfish settlement out of one of Tolkiens books! Though erosion and decay have made many areas of the castle inaccessible, many such rooms are used as pigeon houses.
