Ten million years ago, these depressions were filled by magma and other volcanic features provided by the numerous volcanoes of central Anatolia.Gradually, the depressions were disappearing, transforming the region into a plateau. However, the mineral filled depressions is not very resistant to the action of wind, rain, rivers and temperature differences, so that erosion was sculpting the numerous valleys which Cappadocia is famous
