The most notable church for me was the Yilarli (Serpent) Church with its frescos, arches and obvious altar. My feet were worn out by the end but I felt so exhilarated from the experience.

It seems that it's run by the same company as well as the dormitory.
Very nice rums carved in the stone. big Turkish breakfast. Good service: laundry, booking of balloon flight, horse riding and other activities.
