A shimmering 1,665 square kilometre salt lake in the heart of Central Anatolia.
Famous as the home of the Whirling Dervishes, Konya is also the largest province in Turkey and boasts some surprising diversity in history, ruins, and natural landscapes. Neolithic cities, Hittite shrines, monumental buildings of the Seljuk Empire, all scattered between vast salt lakes, volcanic craters, sink holes, lofty mountains, and lush green plains. Between the wonder of the Seljuk capital and the bizarre landscapes of the outlying villages there are many reasons to explore Konya!
A small town on the edge of Konya famous for its churches, aqueducts, historical houses, and loved for its greats breakfasts!
Set in the lush plains of southern Konya, Çatalhöyük is one of the world’s richest Stone Age archeological digs.
With volcanic lakes and giant sinkholes the rather average town of Karapınar is surrounded by some amazing sights!
