About Catalhoyuk

Catalhoyuk is the site of a Neolithic town in Turkey dating back to between 7400 and 6000 BC.

Containing some of the earliest ever known mural art, Catalhoyuk is considered to be vital in learning about the country’s origins. Catalhoyuk also has a visitor centre with exhibits, although most of these are replicas, the originals having gone to museums around Turkey.
