El Nazar Church is situated in the El Nazar valley, about 800m to te right from the road to the Goreme Open air museum. This church was carved from one piece of rock in a “T” shape. It is cruciform with three apses, the main apse opening up in the center where the barrel vaulted arms of the crucigorm meet. The floor has been completely destroed, as has part of the apse. The frescoes show scenes which follow each other in chronological order. This church can be dated to the end of the 10th century.
