Prepare to be amazed by Alp Karagulle's drone video of Ortahisar Castle in central Turkey.  The magnificent fairy tale chimney rock formations for which the Capadoccia area is famous aren't a strictly natural phenomenon.  In this case, a castle was built right into the chimney, a seemingly impossible task many centuries ago when it was built.  The castle was opened to the public in 2013 after extensive renovations and is now one of the top tourist destinations in Central Anatolia.
