Uchisar Castle ("Üçhisar Kalesi") is a tall volcanic-rock outcrop and it is one of Cappadocia's most prominent landmarks. Winding your way up the stairs to the panoramic vantage point of its peak is a sublime way to watch the sun set over the rock valleys of the Cappadocian countryside. The numerous hollowed-out containers and rock tombs welcome you as silent witnesses to history and human life.
