Cappadocia Tours

Yılanlı church (Church with snake)

Yılanlı church is the one with long corridor and low ceiling. It takes its name from the scene on the wall that Saint George and Saint Theodore killed the snake and dragon. There are also scenes that animated Emperor Constantine and his mother Saint Helena. Another interesting scene is about Saint Onuphrius. This saint had an imaginary life in a desert near Thebes in Egypt. He was painted in long gray beard  and one dress with the leaf of laurel.
