Similar to Ortahisar, early Christian life centered around the Kale tower fortress, the hollowed-out cliff. Some years ago a kilometer long tunnel was discovered that connected the tower with a stream, so that the inhabitants were able to fetch water without exposing themselves to hostile eyes. The picturesque ravine is dotted with rock-cut pidgeon lofts accomodating thousands of birds even today.
