A walkway starting from Çavuşin brings us to two wonderful valleys of Cappadocia. The early churches and the rock formations among the trees and the fields take us to a world of mystery we have yet to discover. Güllüdere is one of these valleys where we find five churches. One of these churches has an inscript which reads the name of emperor Constantine Porphyrogenetus and can therefore be elated. The other churches of Güllüdere have been built in the 7th-10th centuries. The valley of Kızılcukur is also worth a visit especially because of the well-preserved Church of St. Anne and the Cross Church at the opposite end of the valley, where people have sought refuge during the Arab raids.
