As if plucked from a whimsical fairytale and set down upon the stark Anatolian plains, Cappadocia is a geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty. The fantastical topography is matched by the human history here.

Welcome to Maya Cave
Maya is the Turkish word for yeast but we often use it as a general term as the source of bread and therefore life. All these ancient civilizations have had a marked effect on the region, so in their own way they have all become a part of it. Hittites; 2000 BC from central Turkey, Urartians; 1000 BC from eastern Turkey, Lycians; 600BC from South West of Turkey, Byzantine; 300s AD and Ottomans; 1300s AD.
And here we are now....
Cappadocia’s rich volcanic soil helps to grow some of the tastiest grapes of Turkey. Stocking grapes in caves has a beneficial effect on the quality of wine, because the constant temperature it improves the wines.
