Dark Church : Michelin's recommendations
The Dark Church is the most important sight in Göreme’s open-air museum and is the most richly decorated of the churches here. Lit by only one skylight, the darkness has preserved the frescoes, which have been carefully restored and can now be seen in all their glory. In one of the frescoes, representing the Last Supper, Jesus and his apostles are depicted with remarkable skill and portrayed with gentle, serene expressions. This masterpiece was the work of a brilliant artist from Constantinople.
