At the heart of the Anatolian plateau, our guide visits the first of the caravanserais that dot his journey, as they once dotted the ancient trade routes.

The caravanserai at Aksaray is a perfect example of architecture of the Seljuq dynasty, the first empire in the region starting in the 10th century. Then the history and arts specialist Ahmet Diler accompanies Alfred on a visit to the legendary region of Cappadocia, with its “fairy chimneys”, troglodyte dwellings and churches with walls covered in lapis lazuli. By studying the motifs in the famous kilim rugs, Ahmet and Alfred reveal the identity and history of the peoples of Cappadocia, who played a major role on the Silk Road.
