The art lover will truly enjoy a lavish retreat to the Gamirasu Cave Hotel in Turkey. Turkey is a wonderful epicenter for lovers of religious artwork and architecture, and this hotel is a gem of both. The hotel was originally created as a retreat for Christian monks to escape from the stress of the outside world. Beautiful, quaint monk's cells and stairs were carved into the stone mountainside. Hermits stayed in the shrine for centuries before developers converted the special retreat into a luxury resort. Today, travelers from all over the world can enjoy the peace of the beautiful Turkish countryside in this historical marvel.
