                    Many of the caves and fairy-chimney structures have been converted into
                    charming hotels, where you can experience the life of the past in luxury. Many
                    of them offer hammams (Turkish baths), terraces with panoramic views of the
                    surrounding areas, decorated walls and Internet access.

                    What’s more, it won’t take long to discover what the locals have known for
                    centuries: the soft rock from which the caves were carved keeps rooms cool in
                    the summer and warm in the winter, so whatever time of year you visit, you are
                    sure to be comfortable.
