The Sacred House is a small hotel with only 7 cave rooms, but they are all medievally decorated, five of them have open fireplaces. Each room is a small exhibition of Middle Age Art, each one decorated differently, with Ottoman, Greek, and Armenian antiques. The name sacred does not mean a special religion, but the sacral nature of the art and the resulting atmosphere of the house. The hosts Tolga and Talin discovered and recreated several long-forgotten Greek, Armenian and Circassian dishes, which they serve in the comfortable restaurant.
