Southeast of Midyat ( Turkey ), the monastery of Mar Gabriel is the geographical and spiritual centre of the plateau, and - if darkness is approaching - also the safest place of refuge in the area. To get there, leave Midyat on the half-paved, half-gravel Cizre-bound road; after 20 km, just before an unmarked village, turn northeast onto a similarly unsign-posted dirt driveway, which leads to the monastery gate in just over 2 km.
