Derinkuyu Underground City is an ancient multi-level underground city in the Derinkuyu district in Nevşehir Province, Turkey.  With its eleven floors extending to a depth of approximately 85 m, it  was large enough to shelter tens of thousands of people together with  their livestock and food stores. It is the largest excavated underground  city in Turkey and is part of a network of several underground  complexes found across Cappadocia.
