Crusader Church (Haçlı Kilise) in Rose Valley
Turkey, Goreme

The Crusader Church (Haçlı Kilise) is located in the Rose Valley, four kilometers from Göreme. The Crusader Church has survived from the time of the Christians who inhabited these places many centuries ago. It is carved in a rock and is located at a high altitude, in an inaccessible place. The exact date of its appearance is unknown; it is believed that it was built in the VI-VII centuries. Over the many centuries of its existence, the Church of the Crusaders has undergone significant destruction, but even its ruins remain interesting for visiting tourists. In the church you can see well-preserved frescoes and decor on the ceiling. Several centuries have passed, and today we can contemplate the brightness of the colors with which biblical stories are written on the walls. It is believed that the frescoes are well preserved due to the microclimate that forms in moisture-resistant tuffs.
