Lovely stroll down to the church, but if you come during off-season, it will be closed. That’s the only reason for the three stars. Have to give a rating. Trying to be neutral.

It’s located on the outskirts of Goreme, this little church it’s worth visiting for very well preserved fresco paintings inside. Walk from town is a good exercise as well.

See Eric H's review which covers all the bases. This a good way of seeing the far more interesting Hidden Church once you have met the guardian. Having seen what El Nazar church church was like before restoration in 2005-2009, the restoration is amazing.

El Nazar church is a bit of a hike from the main road into Göreme and the road is hot and dusty. Good shoes are necessary, but so is a good attitude. We noticed other people who grumbled about the 5 lire per person price...More

It is a very small yer impressive church. Plus since it is far from etes, it is not usually crowded and way to church is very nice. You can enjoy the view

This conical shaped church is found off a side trail in Zemi Valley and the suprise is that the frescos found inside are well preserved. Worth a brief visit.
