All About Turkey
   Welcome to!


However the most important site in monastery is located above a valley inside the Pontic mountains and is reached after a pleasant ride with beatiful views of nature. After the last point that can be reached by car,a strenuous hike up the hill starts.As you get closer,you feel like you are about to experience something unreal.The manastery looks like it has been taken down from the sky and pasted on the side of the hill.No one has been able to answer the question of how mankind was able to build such a huge monastery on the wall of a mountain with the technology of the 6 th century.14 th century additions to Sumela gave it its final look today and it definitely is one of the most significant tourist attractions on Turkey.As you look at the frescoes on the wals in the monastery (unfortunately,in bad condition),do not forget to drink some cold water from the sacred spring.
