Cappadocia Avanos Turkey Avanos tour
Cappadocia Avanos The township of Avanos is situated on the banks of the river Kizilirmak, fifteen kilometers distant from Nevşehir. It is wellknown for its fine pottery produced in some three hundred small workshops.
Many of the local artisans will cordially accept foreign “apprentices,” who wish to learn the craft of pottery making — at no charge.
The quarries of Avanos yield high quality onyx. Utilitarian and decorative articles made of this precious colored marble constitute the second important local industry.
Visitors going to the subterranean city of Özkonak will drive through Avanos. The town itself is devoid of spectacular relics of the past.
