Ala Church Date Ala Church Cappadocia Ala Church Tour
Ala Church Situated approximately seven kilometers from Ortahisar along the Üzengi creek, Ala Kilise belongs to a large monastic complex; the only monastery in the Göreme region that has been built instead of carved out of the tufa. It stands like a fortress, guarding the ravine, whit sections of its massive walls still standing. Originally, the church was richly decorated with frescos of which only traces survive. They were scraped off and partly whitewashed by vandals of the past.
