The poster features the study of three refectory present in the historical region of Cappadocia:
the Basilica building identified as the refectory nell’Allaçh monastery in Ortahisar, the refectory of one of the complexes in Kılıçlar valley in Göreme (33a) the elaborate refectory of complex Geyikli kilise in Soğanlı.

The aim of these projects specific to the UR – DIDA is the documentation of the rupestrian Cultural Heritage, fragile heritage and in the process of dissolution.
The site’s documentation has been produced with different digital techniques; especially the architectural survey was Carried out using 3D laser scanner, several Photogrammetric restitution techniques, and in some cases, with 360 panoramic virtual tours.
