Ortahisar Attractions

Ortahisar

Although Ortahisar’s foundation date is not known precisely, Hibe Dede, who was one of the Uzbek Turks, came from HORASAN with eight brothers and settled in Ortahisar while immigration from Central Asia started to Anatolia from the beginning. This family has built nine separate dwellings in the castle and its surroundings in the center of the town, by developing the pitfalls and carving additional places around them. These nine families constitute a large part of the present Ortahisar people.

It is understood from the researches and historical documents in the Cappadocia region that the Cappadocia region is a unit which has been operating since the early periods.

Centers such as Alacahöyük, Yazılıkaya, Boğazkale, Hattuşaş, Alişar, Külhöyük, Çengeltepe, Kültepe, Erkilet, Karahöyük and Kaneş Acemhöyük are the oldest centers of settlement and civilization in Cappadocia. Ortahisar, one of the heirs of these centers in the new geography, has an important place with historical features and natural features of the past periods.
