A bit far location and a little church
Nov 2019
On our way back from Goreme open museum, we found a small sign that there is a church inside, its a long walk that involves some hikings, we were pretty exhausted when we reached the top of the mountain that we needed sometime to catch our breath.

We had a musuem pass but apparently its not involved in that so we booked a 7TL ticket, its a pretty small church, we were the only two visitors so we had the place for ourselves for about a full hour.

Its not worth the walk, if you are going by a motorcycle or any ride that would be better. The churches in the open air museum are much more prettier so there not much more that this church offers.

Easy walk, nice frescoes
Aug 2019 • Couples
Although I’m not a fan of paying for visiting rock formation, this church was a notable exception and it’s frescoes were quite nice - even compared to the Open Air Museum (few hundred meters away).

Price was 7TKL per person. Worth it.

Pretty little church right out of a children’s book
Sep 2018 • Couples
Love this church, in easy walking distance from Göreme.

It’s very pretty, with an unusual shape which looks like something from my childhood stories.

It’s a small charge to go inside but worthwhile. Delightful.

place was not best sign posted to get to but was worth the 5 min stroll from the main road.
only a small church and far from the best in the area, but worth a visit and the 5tl entrance fee paid, the guide once asked will give you information on the church and if your lucky and can speak a little turkish will offer you a turkish cay.

very good paintings on the inside of the church

Church is closed October 15-April 15
Mar 2018 • Solo
Lovely stroll down to the church, but if you come during off-season, it will be closed. That’s the only reason for the three stars. Have to give a rating. Trying to be neutral.

Very nice church
Sep 2017 • Couples
It’s located on the outskirts of Goreme, this little church it’s worth visiting for very well preserved fresco paintings inside. Walk from town is a good exercise as well.

Not a bad church, but not particularly interesting. Fantastic restoration.
Jun 2016 • Couples
See Eric H's review which covers all the bases. This a good way of seeing the far more interesting Hidden Church once you have met the guardian. Having seen what El Nazar church church was like before restoration in 2005-2009, the restoration is amazing.
