Derinkuyu Underground City The Cappadocia region is home to 34 underground cities, and Derinkuyu is the deepest one. Its underground city reaches an impressive depth of sixty meters beneath the earth's surface and boasts all the usual sections found in other underground cities, including wineries, stables, storage areas, cellars, refectories, and churches. Derinkuyu Underground City is notable for its unique second-level room used as a religious school during both wartime and peacetime. A tunnel of 100 meters in length leads from the third to the seventh levels where visitors can find a cross-shaped church, cemetery, water well, and ventilation shaft. While the underground city has seven levels, not all of them have been excavated. This remarkable city could have accommodated up to 5,000 to 8,000 people for up to one month at a time. Derinkuyu Underground City is located 40 km away from the Goreme center, 50 km away from Urgup town, and 55 km away from Avanos town.
