6 Days Black Sea Tour - YK612

Departing in the morning from the hotel. we visit Giresun Castle, then ( As an optional alternative we can visit the tomb of The Lame Osman who was the one of the famous person of the City Ordu during World War I). our journey takes us through the spectacular scenery of the Pontic Mountains as we make our way inland up a narrow valley to the Sumela Monastery. Seeming to cling to a sheer rock face high above steep and heavily wooded slopes, the monastery was founded in the 6th century to house an icon of the Virgin Mary, supposedly painted by St. Luke the Evangelist. The monastery was inhabited by Greek Orthodox monks until 1923 when the Greeks were expelled from Turkey in an exchange of populations. The monastery still contains many frescoes of Biblical scenes. Later on we drive you up to Zigana Mountain, crossing the mountain with spectacular views of villages on Pontic Mountains. We arrive at Gümüshane to visit Karaca Cave, considered the most beautiful in Turkey for its colours
