The small city of Niğde is primarily an agricultural center, and the few sights of interest, including the Niğde Museum, can be seen on a short excursion. In the 13th century, the city flourished under the Seljuks, who built the triple-domed Alaaddin Camii and the neighboring fortress. The Ak Medrese, dating to 1409, has stone carvings and a small museum and cultural center. A little ways out of town is Niğde’s most important attraction, Eski Gümüşler Monastery.
