Go on a journey below the surface of the Earth at Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri, a place that once housed up to 20,000 people. This elaborate subterranean complex dates back to about the 7th century BCE and has been used as a refuge from raiders and invaders even in modern times. It descends eight floors and includes a church and a school, together with living quarters, stables, storage rooms, and manufacturing facilities. You can also see the ingenious air and water supply systems. The chambers and passageways are well-lit, but often narrow and with low ceilings, so anyone suffering from claustrophobia might experience discomfort. Take the guesswork out of planning a Derinkuyu vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri reviews
Derinkuyu is the biggest underground town in the area, however I wasn't that impressed with it. Maybe because we visited Kaymakli first which is smaller but far more interesting with much more rooms..... more »
Very enjoyable - but really intense... Narrow passageways and you go really far down. I was ok with most of it but the graves - wow that was spooky. We did this underground city after the one in... more »
This place is great to visit. I would highly recommend to anyone; there is some issues people with breathing problems cannot go to far down. Discovered some of their old engineering and war strategies. Can you believe people survived so long down here??
It was awesome. Very deep, totally worth the price, we spent just over an hour here.
