Red and Rose Valley, two churches

These pictures are the result of walking the Red and Rose Valley. I must confess I do not know where the one continues as the other, and I named all "Rose Valley".

Along the way the Haçlı Kilisesi (Church with Cross) church was open, the ceiling has a huge cross, hence the name. I was told to seek for some “Ottoman” drawings in the Monastery next door, which I found, they look like a medieval joust or battle.

A bit further the Ayvalı Kilisesi (Quince’s Church) was closed, I took some picture through fissures around the door. As a matter of fact I now think that the (difficult) passage north of the church led me from the Red to the Rose Valley, but I’m not certain.
I gave the churches galleries of their own, which are placed in this series at the spot where I came across them.

As a matter of fact at the start of this walk I passed the Üzümlü Kilisesi (Church with grapes), it was closed. I link to that from here.
