The Zelve Open Air Museum in Cappadocia, Turkey, is an enchanting historic site of ancient cave dwellings and rock formations. Once a thriving Byzantine Christian community from the 9th to the 13th centuries, it's nestled within unique 'fairy chimneys' - tall, conical rocks unique to the region. The museum showcases rock-cut homes, monasteries, chapels with early Christian frescoes, wineries, and a rock-cut mosque, offering a unique journey into the past within its three sprawling valleys.
