Really amazing area of Turkey

Cappadocia is a region in central Turkey

Mostly in Nevehir Province.
The name was traditionally used in Christian sources throughout history and is still widely used as an international tourism concept to define a region of exceptional natural wonders
In this case characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. 
The term, as used in tourism, roughly corresponds to present-day Nevehir Province.
In the time of Herodotus, the Cappadocians were reported as occupying the whole region from Mount Taurus to the vicinity of the Euxine (Black Sea). 
Cappadocia, in this sense, was bounded in the south by the chain of the Taurus Mountains that separate it from Cilicia
To the east by the upper Euphrates and the Armenian Highland
To the north by Pontus, and to the west by Lycaonia and eastern Galatia
Have a look
