Mithra Cave Cappadocia
Mithra Cave Cappadocia is a collection of renovated residences in the old upper part of Göreme village. During the renovation our main purpose was to keep the original characteristics of the local architecture while adding, with harmony, modern features.
Our rooms are made into the caves of Cappadocia with our guests comfort in mind. Since before Hitities, locals of this region have been living in the caves, and local stone houses. At Mithra Cave, our purpose is to offer the best stay possible to our guests who are coming from all over the world. We are located in the heart of Cappadocia, in Göreme Village, which is centrally located in the Goreme National Park.
